Photograph of a large pierced stone window in Makhtum Khan's Tomb at Patan, Gujarat, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. Patan was built on the site of the town of Anhilawada which was capital of the Solanki dynasty in the 11th and 12th centuries. The city was taken by Muslim governors of the Delhi Sultanate in the 14th century; the Jami Masjid was built in c.1300. This Dargah of Makhtum Khan is situated near the Jami Masjid. The pierced stone window in this view is decorated with various geometric patterns.
