In one of the areas of the lost city of Mandu sits the tomb of Houshang Shah. The Taj Mahal is said to be based on this very building just 150 years or so later. Said to be the first white marble building in India, heavily influenced by Afghan architecture of the era, it still stands in stunning beauty. Located in the complex of the Jami Masjid Mosque the intricate details in the carved marble are amazing.......over 550 years old, a very real treasure of India. These pictures donot begin to do it justice.
