Humayun's Tomb

Humayun's Tomb is one of the most important monuments of the city and a perfect example of wonderful Islamic architecture was made by Mirak Mirza Ghiyas, a Persian architect. The initiative to make this monument was taken by Humayun’s senior widow Bega Begum. The monument is considered as a precursor of the Taj Mahal in terms of beauty. It was built in 1565 AD and is located on the crossing of the Lodi Road and Mathura Road. The main features of this monument are the beautiful gardens, fountains and of course the double domed mausoleum. Apart from Humayun’s tomb, there are many other Mughal rulers who have their mausoleums built in here.

First thing comes to mind when travelling inside Delhi is Metro.It might be bit confusing to understand and it is one of the thing to experience in Delhi. It will definitely save lot of time and money.Finding stay in Delhi is easy, choose any online platform where you get better offers. But problem with online platforms are we need to login at 12pm. I faced this problem. If checking in early, better not to book hotels in prior as you can get hotels easily in Delhi.First place I visited once In Delhi was Humayun Tomb. It is located in Nizamuddin East. It is believed that design and architecture of Taj Mahal was inspired from Humayun tomb.Next Place I moved from Humayun tomb is Agrasen ki Baoli. We can reach here by ola Auto. This is best place to sit and spend time with friends. Also we can take really good insta photos here. Since this place is not having entry fees, we can find many people here.

Where: Humayun’s Tomb lies on the banks of Yamuna, close to the Dargah of popular Sufi saint Nizamuddin Auliya. The tomb is located at Nizamuddin East, New Delhi.History- What most people don't know about Humayun's tomb is that it was actually built 60 years before the Taj Mahal and it was commissioned by Humayun's first wife, Empress Bega Begum who's also known as Haji Begum. Haji Begum chose Persian architects to build the monument and she also chose the location where she wanted it to be built.Structure- Inside the premises of the tomb lies one of the most prominent designs of Mughal architecture-the garden squares with water channels, better known as Charbagh.Humayun's tomb is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The first ever structure to use red sandstone on such a big scale.I've been to Humayun's Tomb numerous times and I've captured it in several moods and several angles. Here are some of them,

Again safdargunj closes at 5Pm and the ticket cost is 20Rs for Indians and 250rs for foreigners.Took and auto to humayun tomb from there(6kms distance).The closest metro station to the monument is Jor Bagh metro station on the yellow line. From here, you can take a taxi or an auto. The JLN Stadium on the violet line is also one of the closest metro station to Humayun's Tomb.
