Tomb of Muhammad Shah



Tomb of Muhammad Shah, the third ruler of the Saiyid Dynasty, is located within the Lodi Garden in Delhi. It is considered as one of the finest examples of an octagonal tomb built by the Saiyids and Lodis during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. For royal tombs, the pattern used is the octagonal chamber. To indicate the high ranking members of the society, square tombs are used. The other dominating structure seen inside the garden is Bara Gumbad.
