Description

Safdarjung’s tomb is a monument in Delhi, India. It was built in 1753-54 by Nawab Shuja-ud-Daula for his father Safdarjung (sometimes spelled Safdarjang or Safdar Jang), the second nawab of Awadh (Oudh) (1739-53).

The mausoleum was built in red sandstone and buff stone and is an example of the architecture of the late Mughal dynasty.

The caption reads in the original French: Tombeau de Soudja el Daolat, à Dehli. — D’après des épreuves photographiques communiquées par M. le baron Alexis de Lagrange.
