This elaborate lattice is carved out of white marble. It’s part of the Tomb of Salim Chishti, a Sufi saint, and is located on the grounds of the Jama Masjid (Mosque) at Fatehpur Sikri.

Red sandstone dominates the scene at Fatehpur Sikri, a 16th century Mughal city near Agra. The architecture is beautiful, but the view can be a bit drab. There are two areas where this monotony of hue is broken. One is the white marble in the Tomb of Salim Chishti (as well as some decorative accent white marble on the mosque itself.) The other is this little garden which inserts a field of green and rose-red into the mix.
