The tomb of Roshnara lies in the middle of the garden and is known as Baradari meaning ‘open pavilion’. Though in dilapidated condition at present, the tomb once had a simple roofless grave surrounded by intricately carved screens made of marble, and a hall, which had apartments with arched openings. The interior of the hall was beautifully decorated with paintings, some of which can be seen even today on the ceilings of the hall. Surrounded by dry fountains on all sides, the roof of the Baradari has small but artistically domed chambers on the corners.
The British were also very fascinated with this garden-tomb as it was the prefect retreat for them during the Delhi summers. In 1923, a European club known as Roshnara Club was established here and is today one of the most prestigious clubs of the capital with a good cricket ground and well-maintained garden. In fact membership of the Roshanara Club is a distinction that is highly sought after.
