MAUSOLEUM OF THE RANEE, WIFE OF THE EMPEROR JEHANGIRE, NEAR ALLAHABAD.
This lady was an Hindoo princess, although married to a Mahomedan prince, and was called the Ranee, conformably to the Hindoo usage; her Mausoleum is in the large garden near Allahabad, where are the tombs also of several of the Mogul family. It has a grand effect from the simplicity of its plan, is executed with great care, and as a Mahomedan edifice, is very remarkable in being without pointed arches of any kind. A large fountain is attached to it. Mangoe and other umbrageous trees surround the buildings.
Allahabad is five hundred and fifty miles N. W. from Calcutta.
