On The Way-Side Is A Spacious Moholl, Intended By The King For His Father's Women To Remain And End Their Days, Deploring For Their Deceased Lord, Each Enjoying The Lands They Formerly Held, The Chief Having The Pay Or Rents Of 5000 Horse.

In the centre of this garden is the tomb, a square of about three quarters of a mile in circuit.

The first inclosure is a curious rail, to which you ascend by six steps into a small square garden, divided into quarters, having fine tanks; the whole garden being planted with a variety of sweet-smelling flowers and shrubs. Adjoining to this is the tomb, likewise square, all of hewn stone, with spacious galleries on each side, having a small beautiful turret at each corner, arched over head, and covered with fine marble. Between corner and corner are four other turrets at equal distances. Here, within a golden coffin, reposes the body of the late monarch, who sometimes thought the world too small for him. It is nothing near finished, after ten years labour, although there are continually employed on the mausoleum and other buildings, as the moholl and gates, more than 3000 men. The stone is brought from an excellent quarry near Futtipoor, formerly mentioned, and may be cut like timber by means of saws, so that planks for ceilings are made from it, almost of any size.
