View of the Bibi-Ka-Maqbara, the mausoleum of Rabia-ud-Dauran, wife of the Mughal Emperor, Aurangzeb. The central building is crowned with a large dome and the front facade features a large iwan or a three-sided vaulted hall. Four towers can be seen around the mausoleum, one of which appears to be under restoration work. Two men stand near a reflecting pool that extends from the base of the building into the foreground.
