Ibrahim Lodi’s Tomb
In the first battle of Panipat, Babur was victorious against Ibrahim Lodi who lies buried in a tomb at Panipat. This tomb is very simple and is simply a rectangular block on a high platform that has some steps constructed from lakhori bricks. In 1866, the British renovated this tomb and added an inscription that mentioned Ibrahim Lodi’s defeat by Babur.
Kabuli Shah Mosque
After Babur was victorious against Ibrahim Lodi, he constructed a mosque approximately 2 kilometers from Panipat and named it after his wife Kabuli Begum. After six years, Humayun was victorious against Salim Shah close to Panipat after which he constructed a platform surrounding the mosque and named it as ‘Chabutara Fateh Mubarak.’ As he was the ruler nobody objected to the name and the name continues even today. This mosque currently has chambers on either side and along the parapet there is an inscription in Persian.
