Very beautifully kept complex. From the moment you enter till you reach the monument. I have a soft spot for it because of the numerous musical concerts I have attended with this fantastic backdrop. Seeing Humayun's tomb floodlit at night is a treat but is possible only when there is an event going on. Its gorgeous during the day too.... More

It is near Nizzammudin area. Entrance is quite confusing. No sign board near entrance at Arab ki sarai but area is well maintained. Ticket is Rs.10.00 per adult. Best time to visit is from Oct. to March. One can spend around one to two hours. Stairs are old and very steep.

It is a magnificent art of work. This too is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (I wonder sometime how may of those exists in Delhi itself). Until unless you enter in the premises you cant imagine how mammoth the structure and the area would be. This place is just in between the hustle bustle of the Hz. Nizamuddin area. You... More

One of the many garden tombs built by the Mughals, Humayun's tomb is nested in an obscure spot where the entry road even does not indicate its existence! But every citizen of the city knows where it is! In fact, it is probably the first garden tomb built in the country. As you enter, you are struck by the resemblance... More

Located in Nizamuddin East, Delhi, the tomb complex includes the main tomb of the Emperor Humayun, which houses the graves of many mughals. A great mughal architecture and a combination of small gardens. Easily reachable through all modes i.e. by bus, by own vehicle, by metro (nearby station is Safdarjung Enclave) also.
