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.

Humayun Tomb, Delhi Reviews
This is a really cool place to visit. They've done a decent job at preservation, and they have a small area near the entrance of the main tomb where they have put up a lot of helpful material about the architecture and the history of the place. I must say I found it very informative, although the presentation leaves lots of room for improvement. Overall, I'd say it's well worth your time. I'd definitely go again.
Visited here during a Sunday Evening just before the closing and I was spellbound by this striking piece of architecture. The complex is grandiose and the red sandstone used looks beautiful. Though it was crowded being a Sunday, the sight was still very pretty. Also visit the Isa Khan's Tomb alongside this complex. The museum is also well maintained as are the gardens of the complex and some construction is going along outside to make it even better. I would recommend anyone visiting Delhi to come and visit this place. It's a must visit historical monument.
Nice place, usually crowded. Very good and clean monuments. There are many tombs near all are connected by pathways. Good place to take pictures. Outside every tomb there is a brief history written about it . The entry fees is about 30 to 40 rupees for India citizens. History lovers should definitely visit and also those who are fan of great architecture.
It's a beautiful place. Well maintained. Good time to visit the place is morning during the opening hours itself. Otherwise there will be lot of crowd in both the ticket counter and also inside the place. Also there is an option to book tickets online, if your visit is planned in advanced, I would advise you to book online to avoid standing in the long queue
