TOMB OF MUBARAK SHAH (MUBARAKPUR KOTLA) -
Mubarak Shah Sayyid, the second ruler of Sayyid dynasty died in A.D. 1434, when the tomb might
have been built. Originally, this tomb was enclosed by an octagonal compound wall, with two gates on the south and west. But its walls and northern gate have disappeared, leaving only the southern gate and the mosque on the west. The main entrance to its octagonal chamber is from the south, with arched openings also on the other sides except on the west, which is occupied by a mihrab. It is surrounded by a verandah, with three openings in each side. The corners are strengthened by sloping buttresses. Its broad low dome rises from a sixteen-sided battlemented drum with a turret on each corner and is crowned by a lantern. Over the roof in the middle of each side stands a chhatri. The ceiling of the dome is ornamented with incised and coloured bands of plaster, with a triple band of Quranic inscriptions at the springing of the dome. It is a good example of octagonal Sayyid tombs, which retained their popularity in the Lodi and even Mughal times.
