Princess Zeb-Un-Nisa Tomb Under Restoration C. 1920s

Princess Zeb-un-Nisa Tomb (built late 17th century) under Restoration - Lahore c. 1920s

Zeb-un-Nisa, meaning "most beautiful of all women", was a daughter of Emperor Aurangzeb who lived from 1637 to 1702. She gained renowned for her Sufi faith and passionate interest in poetry. However, it is not known if this in fact her tomb. Some sources indicate that she died in Delhi and is buried outside the Kabuli gate. If this is true, another candidate for the tomb's occupant is Mian Bai Fakhrunnisa (Pride of Women), a favored female attendent of Zeb-un-Nisa who was given the Chauburji garden by her patron.
