Photograph of the Tomb of Akbar the Great, Sikandra. The mausoleum is in the Mughal architectural style with a series of terraces with open verandas and a number of chhatris, elevated dome-shaped pavilions. There is a courtyard in the foreground where two men are sitting separately on a low wall.
 
This is one of a series of photographs of Agra by Dr John Murray which were published in a volume with accompanying captions by J Middleton. Murray was an East India Company doctor who used waxed-paper negatives to produce photographs of the Mughal architecture of Agra and the surrounding area.
