Photographer: Arthur Llewellyn Basham
|Series/Report no.:||Basham Collection|
|Description:||Lodi type, but more ambitious and shows efforts to improve the style. It is octagonal and no longer rests on a plinth|
its pyramidal effect is heightened by the high base of the cupola. The walls no longer incline but are vertical. This tomb was built a few years before that of Sher Shah, of which it is, in a way, a trial version. -- Tomb of Alawal Khan. Afghan period of Sher Shah Suri.
