This is the gorgeous structure present near Tank Bund. I’m sure everyone wonders how a building of that kind popped in the middle at Ranigunj. The architecture is interesting too. On entering, I was certain it had to belong to the Paigah rulers but when I looked up, the dome seemed very Qutb Shahi but then it was very heavily decorated as well.
I intend to cover these Heritage monuments of Hyderabad, at least whatever remains of them. Some buildings like this one are a little more fortunate that there is something done for preservation/maintainence but a few others are in a state of total neglect. Perhaps there will be lesser apathy, but at least there’d be some record of the place before it is eventually brought down.

Hazrath Saidanima Saheba was mother of Abdul Haq Diler Jung, who was a high ranking official during the mid-Nineteenth century. The main tomb in the darga is of Hazrath Saidanima Saheba. It is unique in itself
because it is one among those where the entire upper portion, dome etc. of the tomb is Qutb Shahi but the arcade at the ground floor is of cusped arches in Mughal style. A very conspicuous specimen of Neo Qutb Shahi style is this tomb.
