Rani no Hajiro

Rani no Hajiro

The Queen’s Tomb is east of Badshah no Hajiro, across the street leading to Manek Chowk.Although squatters have cosiderably encroached on the surroundings, they add a lot of color with the bright buntings and decorative objects that they make and display.

They are also the de facto caretakers and guides of the monuments. Unlike most memorials of this kind, the tomb is in a courtyard , not a chamber. It is a nice surprise to find such a serene place in the center of an otherwise bustling area. You can sometimes catch artisans building taziasin preparation for Muharram.

On the street leading to the Queen’s (Rani no) tomb (hajiro), where the female members of the royal family were buried, is now a colorful market for ‘ladies’ goods’, crowded with women’s clothing and other items. It lies to the east of Manek Chowk.
