THE MAUSOLEUM OF AMIR KHUSERO, AT THE ANCIENT CITY OF DELHI.
This Mausoleum is built of white marble, finely polished and finished with the utmost delicacy; particularly the lattice work, which is introduced on each side of it.
Amir Khusero, a prince and native of Samarcand, was a poet and historian of considerable merit. He resided at the court of Delhi, in great friendship with Shekh Nizam ad Dien Oulea. He died in the year one thousand three hundred and thirty-nine, and is interred very near the tomb of that venerable Shekh whom the Mahomedans regarded as a saint, and whose name they still continue to revere.
