Tansen’s Tomb

Miyan Tansen is considered among the greatest composer-musicians in Hindustani classical music. He was an extraordinarily gifted vocalist, known for a large number of compositions, and also an instrumentalist who popularized and improved the rabab. He was among the nine jewels of the court of the Mughal Emperor Akbar. Akbar gave him the title Miyan (an honorific, meaning learned man). His contribution to the world of music is priceless and is still worshiped by leading singers and composers of the world. He is believed to be the father of Hindustani Music. More than a monument, this tomb is a part of Gwalior’s living cultural heritage. Each November Gwalior hosts a national music festival honoring Tansen and those inspired by his work.
