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.
