Bird's-eye view of the tombs at Khuldabad - 1868



Bird's-eye view of the tombs at Khuldabad - 1868 Photograph of tombs at Rauza in Maharasthra, taken by Henry Mack Nepean in 1868, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. Rauza, or Khuldabad, meaning Heavenly Abode is an old walled town renowned for its onion-domed tombs. The town is of religious significance to Muslims as the Emperor Aurangzeb (r.1658-1707) is interred here, together with his second son Azam Shah, Asaf Jah, founder of the dynasty of the same name. There are also a number of tombs belonging to other royal figures and several Muslim saints. This is a view from a neighboring hillside, looking down onto the tombs. There are about 20 domed tombs and over 1,400 plain sepulchres. Copyright The British Library Board

The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
