Chauburji (4/10)

Chau means four and burj means tower – Chauburji means four towers. A living monument of Mughal royal architecture and embracing hundreds of years of history within its four pillars, this monument used to be a part of one of the massive gardens during the time of the Mughal era. Chauburji is said to have been constructed as an attribute to the princess Zeb-un-Nissa, the eldest child of Emperor Aurangzeb and his chief consort Dilras Banu Begum. She was also a poet who encapsulated the beauty of the city in many of the writings. The tragedy is that if you stumble upon this place, you might not even be able to comprehend the history, as through the ages the garden around Chauburji has been replaced by noisy markets and is now a busy intersection. If you get the chance to visit this place, take a deep breath and let your mind wander at this remain of an era of splendor and magnificence.
