Asif Jah was the prime minister of India and viceroy of Punjab. His own palace was in Lahore, which was called ‘Asif Jah’s Havelee’.Asif Jah died in 1641and his tomb was built by the orders of Emperor Shah Jehan. It is located opposite the tomb of Jehangir. This tomb was built in a central Asian architectural style and stands in the center of the Persian-style Chahar bagh garden. The condition of this historical heritage is very miserable. It has been ignored badly by the archaeological department. Anyway, its historical importance can’t be denied.
