General view of two domed tombs at Rauza in Maharashtra photographed by Henry Mack Nepean in 1868, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. Rauza, or Khuldabad, meaning ‘Heavenly Abode’ is an old walled town renowned 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, other royal figures and several Muslim saints.
