Ibrahim Lodhi's tomb is situated near a Tehsil Office at Panipat. Ibrahim Lodhi fought fiercely with his uncle Babur, in the battle of 1526 known as the First Battle of Panipat and was slain and buried at this place. It was one of Sher Shah Suriís dying regret that he could not fulfill his intention of erecting a tomb to the fallen monarch. His grave is a simple rectangular block on a high platform approached by a flight of steps made of lakhori bricks. The tomb was renovated by the British, and an inscription mentioning Ibrahim Lodhiís defeat at the hands of Babur and the renovation was included by them in 1866.
