MAUSOLEUM OF KAUSIM SOLEMANEE, AT CHUNAR GUR.

The Mausoleum of Kausim Solemanee is of modern workmanship, and in tolerably good repair; it is built of freestone, and in many parts covered with stucco. The outer wall, which surrounds the area, is very curiously ornamented on the top with lattice-work, cut in stone with the greatest exactness, and the design varying in almost every pannel. Chunar Our is about seventeen miles above the city of Benares, on the opposite side of the river Ganges.
