This scrappy walled garden houses the tomb of the prince who was brutally executed in the war of succession. Khusrau and Khurram were the two sons of Jahangir. When fight for succession followed, it is said that Prince Khurram eliminated Khusrau, his half-brother and wrested the power from his father. Prince Khurram grew up to become Shah Jahan who commissioned Taj Mahal in the memory of his deceased wife.

Nearby is the unoccupied tomb that was intended for his sister. There is another tomb that belongs to Khusrau 's mother, who had poisoned herself in despair at Khusrau' s oppositon of his father Jahangir.
