Tughlaq's tomb

Pastel on La Carte paper 16" X 20"

This painting shows a view of  Ghiyas ud-Din Tughluq's tomb as seen from the Tughlaqabad fort. The tomb made up of smooth red sandstone and white marble stands beautifully fortified amid the fort that is completely ruined. 

This is my fourth painting in the series of Delhi architecture. I think I will now take a break from this and move on to something else for a while. Keep visiting to find out!


  1. Its a lovely painting. I have been there (infact live very near it).. so I know its quite close to the original. You made it from a photograph?
