Humayun Tomb - Review
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
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.
Great architecture and well maintained garden and lots of trees. It feels great when you see the tomb and sit under the shadows of big trees and watch architecture from there. It's awesome. This place is big and very peaceful. Away from all the city's noise you can hear chirping of birds and squirrels makes your day. The crowd was decent and weather was good.
The place has my heart for its enchanting beauty and nooks where you can find absolute silence. I have spent my entire day on numerous occasions by just ogling at the architectural nuances and sitting under the canopy of trees. This is my go to spot when in need of solace! And it ofcourse gives me breathtaking views to capture pictures and create poetry/prose out of them!
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. 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.
Nice and peaceful attraction with a lot of history. Complex a lot larger than you might think- takes about 90 minutes to see everything. I thought that there should be a lot more information plaques as there were hardly any. Thankfully not one person wanted a picture with me which was nice. Also, be aware of the rickshaw drivers who will approach you the minute you approach the car park. They will offer outrageous rates or will force you to visit shops where the driver gets commission. Just ignore them and get one from the roundabout outside.
