    Tomb of Mohammed Shah Sayyid, Lodi Gardens, New Delhi
    Mohammed Shah belonged to the Sayyid dynasty which reigned from 1414-1451. The Sayyids ruled for a short period and over shrunken territories, therefore they had neither the time nor the money to build grand cities or palaces. Of the few architectural remains of the period is this tomb of the third Sayyid ruler, who ruled 1434-1444.
