Tomb of Shah Wilayat

The tomb of Shah Wilayat is a tomb-cum-collegiate complex situated near the Mausoleum of Ibrahim Khan at Narnaul in Mahendragarh District. It was originally built during the reign of Feroz Shah Tughluq. Several parts were constructed in the period of Mughals and British.

The tomb is covered by a hemisphere dome carved out in Pathan styled architecture. Some paintings can be viewed in the square shaped interior of the dome. Date of demise of the Turkish saint is inscribed over the doorway in Persian verse. Ogee curves of the arches signify the Tughalq architectural style.

Chor Gumbad is nearby.
