The complex was built in the years 1622-1628 by Nur Jahan, the daughter of Mirza Ghiyas Beg and favorite wife of Jahangir. The actual tomb was built in the center of a four-divided garden (Char-Bagh). As a protection against floods during heavy rains and as a sign of 'elevated' meaning it was built on a double deck.
