Hakimon ka Maqbara

  • Description:

    Hakim’s Tomb (Urdu: حکیموں کا مقبرہ; “Hakeemon ka Maqbara”) is a 16th-century tomb located in the city of Hasan Abdal, Pakistan, across from the Gurdwara Panja Sahib. The tomb complex also includes the Tomb of Lala Rukh, traditionally attributed to a Mughal princess. The tomb was built for two doctors (Hakims) to the Mughal court, the brothers Hakim Abdul Fateh Gilani Masiuddin, and Hakim Humayun Khwaja Gilani.[1] The tomb was ordered to be built by the Mughal emperor Akbar’s minister and superintendent of construction, Khawaja Shamsuddin Khawafi.[2] Khwaja had intended the tomb to be built for himself between 1581 and 1583,[3][4] but the two royal Hakimss were buried there at the command of Emperor Akbar in 1597. Akbar visited the site after returning from one of his trips to Kashmir.[5]
