Photograph of the Tomb at Rani Rupavati's, or the Queen's Mosque, at Mirzapur near Ahmadabad in Gujarat, taken by order of Major Cole, by an Army sergeant in c. 1881, from the Archaeological Survey of India. The tomb is probably contemporary with the mosque, that is, early 16th century. It stands in the north-east corner of the mosque, on a low platform. It consists of a verandah with twenty pillars around a central area of twelve pillars which support the main dome. This large central dome is surrounded by four small domes at each corner of the building. There are two white marble tombs, the central one, below the dome, is that of Rupavati (1430-40).
