Budshah Tomb, also spelled as Badshah Tomb, is the final resting place of the mother of Sultan Zain-Ul-Abidin [1420 AD to 1470 AD]. Sultan Zain-Ul-Abidin was popularly and respectfully referred to as the ‘Badshah’ by his people, during his reign and lifetime in Kashmir, spanning over 50 years of the late 15th Century AD, famed to be one of the most peaceful and successful existence.

The Budshah Tomb is an excellent representation of a typical Shahmiri style of architectural brilliance yet to be seen elsewhere in India. The monument or memorial site is seen on the right riverbanks of the River Jhelum, situated quite close to Zaina Kadal in Jammu.
