Moosi Maharani Chhatri




Dedicated to Bakhtawar Singhís mistress, Moosi Maharani Chhatri is a beautiful cenotaph on the banks of Sagar. This stately sandstone and marble cenotaph is a fine specimen of Indo-Islamic style of architecture. The cenotaph has domed arches with beautiful floral tracery. It is decorated with mythological and court scenes in fading gold leaf painting and its ceiling is adorned with impressive carvings. A museum on the top floor of the palace displays rare collections of Arabic and Sanskrit manuscripts, tenth-century statues, ivory ornaments, fine embroidery, weapons and stuffed animals.

Indira Gandhi International Airport, situated 163 km from Alwar, is the nearest airport. Alwar is well connected by road and rail with prominent locations in and around the state.
