Photograph of Darya Khan's Tomb at Ahmadabad in Gujarat, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s, for the Archaeological Survey of India. The tomb, built in 1453, is situated about a mile from the city's Delhi Gate. It is built of brick, unlike the other monuments in Gujarat which are built of stone. Around the central domed chamber are sixteen cells covered in smaller domes, forming a corridor around the tomb. Each face of the tomb has five arched entrances corresponding to the smaller domes.
