Humayun's Tomb: A great piece of Architecture


Humayun's Tomb located opposite Dargah Nizamuddin is the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun in Delhi, India. It was built in 1565 A.D. nine years after the death of Humayun by his senior widow Bega Begam. Its an excellent example of Persian Architecture.  The tomb is a World Heritage Site as declared by UNESCO in 1993. Humayun's Tomb is one of the most beautiful monuments in Delhi but you don't see it as often as you see India gate, Qutub Minar or Lal Quila. Humayun's tomb is sublimely well proportioned, seeming to float above its symmetrical gardens. It is one of the eminent structures of the Mughal Dynasty that is regarded as the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent.
