Photograph of the side view of Shaikh Wajih-ud-Din's Tomb at Ahmadabad in Gujarat, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s, from the Archaeological Survey of India. This tomb, or dargah, was built in c.1609 by Saiyad Murtaza Khan Bokhari. The marble tomb of the saint sits under a tower supporting the main dome, to the west of the dargah. The facade in this view has two rectangular doors and four other openings with cusped arches, the latter may be regarded as windows although they reach to the floor.
