Najubibi's  Makbara in Junagadh in Gujarat

We got to know about this structure when we visited the Science Museum, it had a map of historical monuments in Junagadh.
Information on Najubibi's  Makbara and Bara Saiyad (Barashahid) in Junagadh in Gujarat
I am not sure if these places are tagged on google maps. let me check. No it is not. But don't worry. I got the phone no. of Dr. M.A. Shaikh 9429488096. He is the caretaker of the Makbara of Najubibi. He lives near the monument premises. He will give you a lot of information on this site.  
Read this signboard for a little information on both these structures.
What should I say, I kept asking myself, If this is a tomb? The artwork on the Najubibi's was just impressive. Again it makes me ponder, if the Tomb is so beautiful, what would have the palace looked like.

It was a square shaped structure, with five beautifully carved arches on either side. On the top, it had a dome in the middle with four small domes surrounding it.
