Pavilions in Aurungzeb's pleasure gardens, Khuldabad (Rauza)



Pavilions in Aurungzeb's pleasure gardens, Khuldabad (Rauza) - 1868 Photograph of pavilions at Khuldabad photographed by Henry Mack Nepean in 1868, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. Rauza, or Khuldabad, meaning _Heavenly Abode_ is an old walled town in Maharashtra 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, other royal figures and several Muslim saints. The pavilions in this view are carried on slender pillars surmounted by Bengali-style domed roofs. 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.
