From controversial Communist leaders to a Mughal emperor and his wife, this week’s Bucket List brings you seven mausoleums you can tour. Some contain the embalmed bodies of political figures or the concealed coffins of renowned poets, writers, scientists and monarchs that are therefore famous for those they house. Other mausoleums in this gallery aren’t as noteworthy for whom they were built, but rather the structures themselves. All seven present a surreal experience.
