Photograph of a tomb at Khuldabad in Maharashtra, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections, taken by Henry Mack Nepean in 1868. Rauza or Khuldabad, meaning ‘Heavenly Abode’ is an old walled town famous for its onion-domed tombs. The town is of religious significance to Muslims as the Emperor Aurangzeb (r.1658-1707) is interred here, together with his second son Azam Shah, Asaf Jah, founder of the dynasty of the same name. There are also a number of tombs belonging to other royal figures and several Muslim saints.
