The white marble tomb of Salim Christi, a muslim prophet. Saried women move around carved pillars, and lattice screens filtered the light to stunning effect. Inside is a tomb inlaid with mother-of-pearl where a holy man is seated on cushions and visitors donate rupees.

Tombe de marbre blanc de Salim Christi, prophète musulman. Les piliers sculptés représentent des femmes en sari et de stupéfiants effets de lumière filtrent à travers les moucharabiers.
