Rasulkhanji, Navab Junagadha. 1900', of the Mahabat Mukbara at Junagadh, Gujarat, taken by the Solankee Studio, in c.1900. Junagadh was ruled by the Muslim Babi dynasty, established in c.1735 by Sher Khan Babi. Their tombs, known as maqbara, are situated within the city walls in two groups dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, and are some of the most extraordinary and unusual buildings in Gujarat. This is a view of the mausoleum of the Nawabs Mahabat Khanji II (ruled 1851-1882) and Bahadur Khanji II (ruled 1882-1892), which has a finely carved fa├žade crowned with a forest of onion domes.
