Tomb of Muhammad Ghaus and Tansen’s Memorial @ Gwalior, India

Recently visited this sandstone mausoleum of a sufi saint Shaikh Muhammad Ghaus designed on early Mughal architecture. A pleasant revealation that happened during our visit was that right next to this tomb lies the memorial dedicated to Miyaan Tansen – one of the most prominent Hindustani Classical musicians and a God figure for several musicians from this sub-continent! Shaikh Muhamad Ghaus was the Sufi master of Miyaan Tansen. Also, next to the place where this great musician rests in peace is the burial of Bilas Khan, Tansen‘s son who, as per a popular legend, is credited to have created the raagaBilaskhaani Todi“. It is said that Bilas composed the raga while grief-stricken at the wake itself, and that Tansen‘s corpse moved one hand in approval of the new melody!! It was a unique experience to be there 🙂
