This photograph was taken by Edmund William Smith in the 1890s and forms part of the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. According to the North-West Provinces list the tomb is known as the Chaurasi Gumbaz, or 'Eighty-four Domes', and said to be the tomb of Lodi Shah Badshah. The building has a high central dome on a square drum. This is echoed by a smaller cousin and an engaged battered bastion at each of the four corners. There is a pyramidal square kiosk at the centre of each side, with seven arched openings recessed in three planes on each face of the single-storey tomb.
