Plan of Shaikh Sarab's rauza at Patan from James Burgess' 'Original Drawings [of] Architecture of Northern Gujarat.' The city of Patan located in Gujarat, was formerly called Anhilvada or Anhilpur and was established in 765 by Vanaraja, the first king of the Chavada dynasty. In the southern section of town, outside of the walls of the Shaikh Jodh Masjid, there are several Muslim tombs. Burgess wrote: ?[These are] known as the Rauzas of Muhammad Tahir, of a Qazi, of Shaikh Sarab, etc. The domes of these are supported on old sculptured Hindu pillars of white marble. On the capital of one of these is a short inscription in Devanagari recording setting up of the column by the wife of Ajayad in Samvat 1256.? Inscribed: Govt. Archaeol. Survey of Western India. No. 930
