Series/Report no.: Basham Collection
Description: This is the last Mughal monument, built in 1723 by a nobleman to shelter his last remains, and is also imitative of the Taj Mahal. It has no minaret, is surmounted by a badly proportioned dome and has corner towers. Built in red sand-stone and inlaid with marble, it measures only 60 feet on each side. It is a poor imitation and its beauty lies mainly in the colours of the stone and the inlaid work.
