Explore Historic Burhanpur - Monuments & Pilgrims on 10th & 11th January 2015

The Historic city of Burhanpur is famous for its many beautiful monuments that lie scattered across the city. Most of the monuments lie in a state of ruins but they give us a fine idea of the grandeur of the Mughal Rule. The city was considered to be the Gateway to the South. A lesser known fact about the city is that Mumtaz Mahal breathed her last in this city and was entombed across the river Tapti before her tomb was shifted to The Taj Mahal in Agra.



Join us as we at Nisarga Bhraman are heading to Burhanpur to explore these monuments and pilgrims on January 9th 2015.
