- Lower Tomb Chamber

The section is not open to the visitors. The rectangular room is simpler than the above. The graves are similar to the upper cenotaphs but decorated with different motifs. The platform of the lower cenotaph of Mumtaz Mahal is almost without any decoration. The upper surface is decorated with the inscriptions of Qur’an and the sides of the cenotaph are covered with the Ninety-Nine Beautiful Names of Allah inside cartouches. The epigraph at the foot end is the same with the upper cenotaph’s.

The same decoration elements such as poppies, lily-like blossoms are also used on the lower cenotaph of Shah Jahan and similar to the decoration of Mumtaz Mahal’s tomb. Again, there is no formal inscription of Qur’an but a more comprehensive and enlarged epitaph which reads;
“This is the illuminated grave and sacred resting place of the emperor, dignified as Rizwan, residing in Eternity, His Majesty, having his abode in Illiyun, Dweller in Paradise, the Second Sahib’l Quiran, Shah Jahan, Padshah Ghazi; may it be sanctified and may Paradise become his abode. He travelled from this world to the banquet hall of eternity on the twenty-sixth of the month of Rajab, in the year 1066 Hijri”.
