About Humayun Tomb, Delhi

Humayun’s tomb is a stunning relic and is the perfect example of Mughal architecture in India. This tomb was commissioned by Humayun’s wife Bega Begum in 1569 and its construction finished in 1572, making it one of the earlier Mughal structures present in India. The design of the building is credited to Mirak Mirza Ghiyas.

This burial place is historic for a lot of reasons. The fact that it belonged to a Mughal emperor is just the beginning of those reasons. The grandiose structure started a trend amongst the Mughals in India of building very lavish and beautiful resting places for the royals that have given rise to exquisite buildings like the famous Taj Mahal.

This mausoleum has an absolutely stunning window pane which points towards the Mecca which is a real sight to be beheld. The roofs and walls are intricately carved and decorated. There are many floors with beautiful viewing galleries as well as sky lights. Besides, several smaller tombs lie in and around Humayun’s tomb. A definite must see for the art-lover and the culture seeker.

  • Best to visit in morning when nobody is around. Opens at 6.30. Good huge place to explore. 30rs. for Indian is a good price to visit.Clean tidy place. Visited here 3rd time and always a peaceful place to bring people. A detailed book of importance of this place should be provided which should be reusable for tourists again and again. Toilets available in good condition. Less crowded, nice green fields with bushes and trees around the old structure make you feel of living in past time. Just Rs.30 entry per person (Indian) is cheap. It's great place if you want come along with your family but make sure to stuff your stomach with enough food as no eatables are allowed in there. I like reading under the trees as usually this is a quite place with cushioned grasses all over the year.

  • I always wonder how these people had so much time to built such marvellous structures. Amazing. Place to visit once. Very silent, not that crowded. If you are lucky enough, and having window seat in your flight journey, then you may get a chance to see a top view of same. I was quite lucky to see that while landing of flight in delhi.
