Paigah Tombs


Located about 10 kilometers from Charminar, the well-known Paigah Tombs are popular tourist sites in Hyderabad. The complex contains 27 carved-marble tombs in enclosures with delicately carved walls and pillars, stunning geometrically patterned filigree screens and, overhead, tall, graceful turrets. At the western end, a handsome mosque is reflected in its large ablutions pool. The tombs are unique in their design and architecture. The lattice work, arched alcoves, and exquisite designs are fine examples of extraordinary architecture.
