Safdarjung's Tomb

Built during the years 1753- 1754, this is the last enclosed garden of the Mughal Era. This was the mausoleum of Safdarjung, who was the viceroy of Awadh under Mughal Emperor Muhammad Shah. It resembles the look of the Humayun’s Tomb but is much smaller in size. The monument has small divisions with very attractive names such as Jangli Mahal, Moti Mahal and Badshah’s Mahal. the mausoleum complex also has a madarsa and the whole monument is under the supervision of the Archeological Survey Authority of India.

Right from the qutub minar i went to safdarjung tomb which is almost 8kms from there. You can either take an auto or a cab or the nearest metro station is Jor Bagh metro station from where it takes only about 3 minutes to reach the tomb.
