Imagery containing a combination of a tree and a platform is prsent in Mughal paintings. The tree platform at Humayun's Garden Tomb is the central point of interest in the northeastern quadrant of the garden, next to Nizam al-Din's chilla khana. This octagonal masonry platform is built around a tree at the center of an eight-tank water channel circuit. This water channel circuit is a small scale repetition of the water channel circuit that connects the the four octagon and four rectangular pools around the tomb. One of these tanks empties into a large chadar before disappearing into a final tank. Viewing the tree platform from the South reveals what could be the setting for a Mughal painting.
