North façade of the small tomb (Tomb of Shah Alam's Brother) at Batwa, Ahamadabad
Medium: Photographic print
Photograph of the north façade of the small tomb at Batwa near Ahamadabad in Gujarat, taken by order of Major Cole, by an Army sergeant in c. 1881, for the Archaeological Survey of India. This is the tomb of a saint who was the son of Qutbul Alam (d.1452) and Shah Alam's brother. It stands west of that of his father in a complex at Batwa, or Batura, situated about six miles of Ahmadabad. The tomb, or dargah, is much smaller than his father's. It is trabeated with a dome over the central area supported by Hindu style pillars, connected by a carved stone screen.
