Default Ibrahim Roza

Bijapur is, apart from Gol Gumbaz, also known for another landmark - the tomb of Ibrahim Adilshah, also called the Ibrahim Rauza or Ibrahim Roza. The symmetry of the two monuments and the magnificent minarets have led these to be believed to be the inspiration for Taj Mahal. Some photos..

As you enter...



A closer view. The original tombs are in the basement, and only a replica is kept on the elevated structure. The basement also contain the living quarters of the attendants and other rooms and passages.



One of the residents studying seriously for her examination, aware or unaware of the long and rich heritage sitting above her head:



A front view of the two buildings on the platform. This one has only arches and empty space, so must have been used as a prayer hall or meeting place.



This one contains the tomb of Ibrahim Adilshah and his family members.



Calligraphy on the wall surrounding the door:



On the beautiful door too:



The tomb (replica) of Ibrahim Adilshah. This is flanked by tombs of members of his family on either side.



Artisanship: See the chain and pendant hanging high, carved out of stone:



Wrapping with the photo of one of the lovely minarets:



Hope you like these. C&C most welcome.

Thank you, everyone, for your kind words and comments.

Tullio, I would like you to see my thread around this time last year on the 'Baby Taj' - http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pa...-part-2-a.html. This is so near the Taj Mahal yet so many people miss it because they don't know about this place. I'm sure you would like this, as well as the other posts of Delhi & Agra I had posted at that time.
