Photographer's Note

During my recent visit to New delhi I got and opportunity to shoot the historical monuments. This picture is one of them.
This tomb was built in 1753-1754 . Described as the "last flicker in the lamp of Mughal architecture" it is clearly decadent in style. This tomb was built by Nawab Shuja-ud-Daulah who was the son of Safdarjung (1739-54).
The tomb is roughly on the plans of Humayun's tomb, though much scaled down.It is set in the middle of an extensive garden, which spreads over an area of over 300-sq-metre. The garden itself is on the pattern of the Mughal 'Chaharbagh' style. In the center piling up with effortless arrogance is the massive gateway to the enclosure which rises to two levels. Inside there is the tomb, the courtyard and a mosque.
