Razia Sultan’s Grave

The grave of Razia Sultan (d. 1240 AD), north of Sita Ram Bazaar Road in Old Delhi. This is one of the few extant sites within Shahjahanabad that predates the setting up of the Mughal capital, along with the nearby burial site of Shah Turkman and the Kalan Masjid, among a few others. Razia Sultan was the only woman ruler of the Delhi Sultanate, being selected by her father Iltutmish, but ruled for just four years before being killed for the throne.
