Humayun's Tomb, New Delhi

4.6
Marvel at one of the nation's most renowned mausoleums at Humayun's Tomb, a World Heritage Site displaying a fusion of both Mughal and Persian architectural features. Built in 1565 on orders from Akbar, the son of the Emperor Humayun, the mausoleum represents the first in a long line of "garden-tombs" that defined Mughal architecture over the following centuries. You can admire the intricate red sandstone and white marble construction, topped with an impressive dome, as you wander the extensive grounds dotted with shrines and monuments. Enter the memorial to get a glimpse of Humayun's final resting place. Many of the architectural designs used on the tomb and its surrounding buildings helped to inspire the Taj Mahal.

  • One of most Historic and incredible icon of India... Security is a great issue here... No rules and regulations. The token facility is just a showoff, the people hired there for maintaining security are misusing there authority as its their own property. A reliable, sensible & dutiful authority must check this issue here. Peace✌
