Photograph of Yaqut Dabuli's Mosque and Tomb, Bijapur from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s. "Yaqut Dabuli, the Abysinnian slave, who was entrusted by Muhammad Adil Shah [r.1627-1656] with the elaborate colour decoration of the great mihrab in the Jami Masjid, lies buried just outside the citadel to the north-east. His remains repose within a very small mausoleum, close beside which is the mosque, in this case a larger and more important building than the other. The tomb is a compact little square structure with stone lattice work filling each of the three sides, the doorway being on the south side...."
