Back of the Tuck's postcard on Nizamuddin. An intriguing caption says: "Tomb of Nizan-ood-din. Tomb of the reputed founder of Thuggism, who is supposed to have murdered the Emperor Tuglak in 1325. His body now rests in a sarcophagus, covered with a cloth, and surrounded by a verandah of white marble." (From the collection of Yousuf Saeed)
