View of the back of the Sheikh Saad tombs at Mudayy. In the foreground Muslim graves marked by large gravestones lies in front of two small tombs with bell-shaped roofs. The walls are made from large rough stones fitted with small stone slivers. The roofs are topped with plaster, which is falling away from the rock, and the building is decorated with a frieze of stone slabs in a zigzag pattern along the top of the tomb walls. One of the tombs has an inscription which states it is the resting place of Sheikh Saad.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
