Some Interesting Facts!!
1) The Gumbad has a square plan that measures 13.5 on each side with a recessed arch and central doorway. A staircase on the southern side leads to the terrace. The tomb is constructed of random rubble masonry with fine layers of plaster. The colors of the tomb are breathtaking at sunset.
2) Rows of light are fitted on the floor; the domed roof is bathed in a bright orange glow. As you enter from the side gate (on Lodhi Road), the white light falling off the tomb's wall shows you the way. A few trees are lit subtly; others are left in the darkness. Inside of the chamber is washed in a deep gold shade. Strobe lamps are arranged artistically at several vantage points.
3) In September 2010, the unremarkable tomb, tucked in a corner of Centenary Methodist Church, got a new look.
