Sarcophagus Caligraphy

The only thing intact in Asaf Khan's tomb is the marble sarcophagus with Arabic calligraphy & a plain brick floor.

Arabic calligraphy is some of the most beautiful in the world of alphabets. This photo is magnificent. You are to be commended for it and for the post yesterday. Really nice work.

Hi Destitute Rebel, I think this is one of your best picture that I really like. The subtle shadows created the mood in this tomb. Perfect.

That might be a plain brick floor but it is beautiful and fitting for the sarcophagus.
