Photograph of the Tomb of Rani Rupavati at Ahmadabad in Gujarat, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s, from the Archaeological Survey of India. The tomb is situated to the north east of Rani Rupravati's Mosque, also known as the Queen's Mosque, which was probably built during the reign of Sultan Muzaffar Shah (r.1511-26). The tomb has open sides with pillars supporting a large central dome and four smaller domes on each corner of the building. Two white marble graves, carved with the chain and censer motif, sit beneath the central dome.
