Tombs at Khuldabad - 1830



Tombs at Khuldabad - 1830 Pen and ink and wash drawing of tombs at Khuldabad by Francis Gresley (1807-1880), c.1830s. Inscribed on the drawing is: 'Durgah of Zurzuree Zurbuksh at Rozah'. On the reverse is a pencil drawing of a church, possibly Goa. Khuldabad, meaning Heavenly Abode, is an old walled town in Maharashtra famous for its onion-domed tombs. The town is of religious significance to Muslims as the Emperor Aurangzeb (reigned 1658-1707) is interred here, together with other members of his dynasty, and several Muslim saints. Once an important and prosperous town, the site is considered a hallowed burial ground. Copyright The British Library Board

Very good information.


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.
