Drawing of the mausoleum of Nawab Safdar Jang in Delhi. Inscribed on the front in Persian characters: 'Naqshah i maqbarah i Nauwab Safdar Jang' (Picture of the tomb of Nauwab Safdar Jang); on the back in English: '8. The Tomb of Nowab Sufdar Jung, at Delhi.' Nawab Safdar Jang was the governor of Awadh between 1739 and 1753 during the reign of the Mughal emperor Ahmad Shah (r. 1748-54). Safdar Jang's body was moved to Delhi where his son Nawab Shuja ud-Daula built a tomb in 1753-54 based on the model of the tomb of the Mughal emperor Humayun. The tomb is square in plan with engaged minars at each of the four corners. It is faced in red sandstone and surmounted by a bulbous white marble dome. The mausoleum sits at the centre of a 'chahar bagh', a garden divided into four parts by raised sandstone walkways and sunken water channels. There is a monumental gateway to the south. Inscribed below: 'Suftur Jung's Tomb.'
