Abstract

ELIZABETH B. MOYNIHAN That place is at the end of a beaked hill, its beak being of solid red building stone. I had ordered the hill cut down to the ground-level and that if there remained a sufficient height, a house was to be cut out in it, if not, it was to be levelled and a tank cut out in its top. As it was not found high enough for a house, Ustad Shah Muhammad the stone-cutter was ordered to level it and cut out an octagonal, roofed tank. North of this tank the ground is thick with trees, mangoes, jaman, all sorts of trees; amongst them I had ordered a weil made, 10 by 10; it was almost ready; its water goes to the afore-named tank. To the north of this tank SI. Sikandar's dam is flung across; on it houses have been built, and above it the waters ofthe Rains gather into a great lake. On the east of this lake is a garden; I ordered a seat and four-pillared platform to be cut out in the solid rock on that same side, and a mosque built on the western one. ' Intrigued by this
