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.

  • Nice historical places as well as architectural work, which give you an idea of Islamic architecture. Suitable places for everyone except very elderly & those who have knee problem. There are many graves inside of the main tomb complex and few others are beside the tomb. Moreover it would be useful for everyone to know if names were given with minor descriptions, so that visitors can get the information about the deceased who are resting at these graves.

  • One of my favorite historical sites in Delhi. Lovingly restored, well maintained and peaceful. There are no touristy airs either... Which leaves one the luxury of enjoying the beautiful gardens and architecture in a leisurely manner. A rare thing indeed.

  • A fantastic space to spend some time. The structure as it is, is amazing, and therefore it is a UNESCO world heritage site. But apart from that, just walk away to the gardens that are present here and spend some time listening to the numerous bird calls, and I'm sure you are going to love it. Also, the recently renovated Isa Khan's Tomb is incredibly beautiful! Definitely spend some time here too
