theaventedor Sunset at Najaf Khan’s tomb the complex locally called Charbagh. For a short walk from the jorbagh metro station lies Lodi colony’s best kept secret. In an unfinished tomb lies the great later Mughal general Najaf Khan who defended the empire for Shah Alam the second. He was also the famous general who held the fortress of Najafgarh. The area was named after him. During his time, Najafgarh was not once conquered or let anyone else besiege Shahjahanabad. The tomb was planned to be a grand mausoleum in the memory of the general who lay defeated only by death. He had kept the Rohillas, Jats, Sikhs and the Marathas at bay and introduced in the Mughal army European style cavalry units. But like his master history has been cruel to him. His victories lay forgotten and incomplete.
