Lucknow, The tomb of Saadat Ali Khan, the last Nawab of Awadh, is built near Begum Hazrat Mahal Park in Hazratganj, Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh. Saadat Ali Khan is buried with his wife and daughters in this tomb. In this tomb of five floors, there are four paths to go to each floor. All four roads leading to the basement have been closed. Only one way has been opened, but people are scared to go to that basement because a strange incident happens by going there.
When News18 Local reached this tomb, the camera became completely blurred as soon as they entered the basement where the last Nawab of Awadh is buried. While the picture was clearly visible on its walls, the camera was getting completely blurred every time the camera was being moved towards the grave. This incident was not only with us, but after questioning the guides there, it was found that most of the tourists have complained about the same. No one has been able to know the secret behind this till date.
According to historian Ravi Bhatt, after the death of Saadat Ali Khan, the last Nawab of Awadh, his son Ghaziuddin Haider built this luxurious fort for the graves of his father, mother and sisters. This tomb started in the year 1814 and was completed in 1827. It is built with Lakhori bricks. In this, marble was used for the first time at that time. The artwork done inside it is more beautiful than the Bada Imambara. Its ceiling height is more than 50 feet. He told that when the British had occupied Awadh, Christmas was made here in the year 1858. Because he also used this tomb as a church for some time.
Mysterious is the whole tomb
The skylight of this tomb has been made in such a way that when the sun rises, its first ray falls on the tomb, and when the sun sets, the last ray also falls on the tomb. Not only this, it is free to roam.
Let us tell you that there is another tomb right next to this tomb which is Khurshidzadi’s tomb. Khurshidzadi was the wife of Nawab Saadat Ali Khan whose tomb is in this second tomb.
