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.

Beautiful place to visit. Entry charges are there around rupees 4O something, not sure about the amount tho. Well maintained and historic place. They got information centres too before the main tomb.

This is a historical place and world heritage! However, inside the tomb there's no ventilation and poor lighting. When people visit there's no proper sight inside and smells as well. While outside the doors it is quite well with good greenery and sights.
Beautiful and lovely destination for family and couples, you can roam around and you will be able to easily consume your 1 to 2 hours. If you are a photographer or a picture perfect person then you should go here at around 6 A.M in the morning to see lovely sunrise. People normally start to come after 8 o'clock in the morning and just to mention there is an entry fee. It closes in the evening before the dark comes in and even if you've entered 10 minutes before the guard will ask u to leave.
