It contains the tomb of his wife and daughter, Fatima, the sultan himself lying among the Mameluke Kings. The courses of red and white stone are here very striking ; but the tomb has a special interest as the memorial of one who twice, A.D. 1393-94, defeated Timour and his Tartars in the Syrian plains."
