About Burhanpur

Burhanpur a small town in Madhya Pradesh which is barely 20 kms from the Maharashtra Border, founded in 1400 AD by the Faruqi King, Nasir Khan, on the northwestern banks of the Tapti. Burhanpur remains a city of great architectural importance, but its fame rests largely as a piligrimage for Bohra Muslims as well as for Sikhs. Across the Tapti from Burhanpur is one of its most well-known monuments, the Akhukhana, literally 'deer park', which was used as a hunting ground during Faruqi and Mughal rule. This is also where Shah Jahan’s most beloved queen, Mumtaz Mahal was buried. She died in Burhanpur in 1631 while giving birth to their 14th child, princess Gauhara. The queen's body rested here for several months until it was disinterred and travelled with the Mughal court to Agra –  to find a final home in the glorious Taj Mahal.
