Notes on the Geography of Peninsular India: Bijapur (Vijayapura): Photo 14
The city's most spectacular work is perhaps the Ibrahim Rauza, the tomb of Ibrahim, who ruled between Ali and Muhammad. Aurangzeb made this place his camp quarters, and it was damaged by Bijapur guns vainly defending the city. The tombs were repaired by the English and the Raja of Satara. The Raja's preservationist credentials may be questioned, however, since he (or possibly a predecessor) stripped the Mehtar Mahal of its gilding.
