Believed to have been inspired by the architectural beauty of the Taj Mahal, Ibrahim Rauza houses the tomb of Ibrahim Adil Shah II and his wife, Taj Sultana. The word 'rauza' means tomb. It took around 47 years to complete the monument that comprises the tomb at the eastern end and a mosque at the western end. These two beautiful buildings stand on a podium and have a fountain and an imposing tank between them. A lush green garden surrounds the buildings and adds to their overall charm. The architecture of these buildings is inspired from Turkish and Persian designs. It is said that the monument would have been at par with the Taj Mahal of Agra had it been built in white marble.
