The Safdarjang Tomb is a beautiful marble and sandstone tomb built for a Wazir or chief minister in the Mughal Empire in 1754. It is perhaps the most lavishly built mausoleum that doesn’t belong to an emperor or someone from the royal family in Delhi. The reason for this might be that Safdarjung himself was quite wealthy and powerful.
It isn’t as grand as the other tombs but it has a beautiful garden around it. There are also certain other buildings including a madarsa that have been built around the same area and a part of the premises. The typical Mughal architecture is definitely worth a look. The stone carvings which are very common in Mughal architecture are intricate and stunning. Definitely a must visit if you are a fan of Mughal architecture.

If I had to do it again, I would but I would plan it as part of a trip including some other destinations in the area (of which there are plenty). Entry for Indian citizen Rs. 25 per head. Parking 10 rupees. Best part about this monument is there are very few people around so you get to enjoy it without the usual crowds. But in terms of upkeep much to be desired - there is lot of rubble and work happening so hopefully will get better. Gardens and surroundings are nice but not very large in comparison to others we have visited so if your looking g for a good walk about as well this would need a couple of rounds around the periphery to clock I. Your steps.
A beautiful place to visit in the morning or evening. In the sun, you'll be busy with sweating and all. So better come here on the day which is less hotter or prefer coming here in the morning during sunrise or sunset. No doubt, this place is beautiful but to enjoy it, you need to choose some specific hour according to the weather. This place is shooting and a group of people who share a good bond, can definitely enjoy it to its fullest. Travel and live happily 😊
Amidst a very busy city, this place is a go-to for some peaceful moment. The environment is peaceful and everyone can have some time for themselves and with their loved ones. The monument has been heritaged well but there still are places which the concerned authority can work on to promote both internal and international tourism. Nature and the human creativity can be found in a single place here.
So soothing environment... A calm place to sit and meditate.. not much crowded.. there is a nominal fee of ₹25.. but you will have lots of fun around Tomb. Explore this place in ur style.. so much for greenery all around tomb.. this monument have 4 faces..
Actually my plan was to go to lodhi gardens but then I saw this place on the maps. This place is less crowded, maybe because many people skip this place. Tomb was surrounded with lush green garden and architecture of the tomb was great.
