Safdarjung Tomb - New Delhi, India

Mirza Muqim Abul Mansur Khan, popularly known as Safadarjung, was the ruler of Awadh. He was appointed Vazir (Prime Minister) of the Mughal Empire under Emperor Mohammed Shah Ahmed Shah and moved to Delhi in 1748. He was exiled from the capital shortly prior to his death due to his cruel treatment of the Emperror's family. His tomb was built by his son and is the last monumental tomb garden of the Mughals.
