Jahangir's tomb is situated outside the present Lahore city and across the River Ravi in a locality called Shahdara. The area in Jahangir's times was a vast open area with thick date trees, some of which still survive today. Jahangir, as he had great love for nature and hunting, would often come to Shahdara along with Noor Jahan and even camp during hunting seasons in the special royal garden. Noor Jahan got a beautiful garden laid at Shahdara, which was known as "Dilkusha Garden" - a garden that pleased the hearts.
When Jahangir died in 1625, his younger son Shah Jahan built Jahangir's tomb on the site of "Dilkusha Garden" which was completed in 1637 and cost Rs 1 million, the same way he later built Taj Mahal for his wife Mumtaz Mahal. The walled tomb-garden is entered from the Akbari serai on the west side.
