Well kept lawns, great monument, low entry fee, lot of greenery.... All combined with a bit of history and this is a perfect place to visit. I went there twice with a gap of 10 years in between. And it attracted me both times. In my opinion, a well kept monument that is a must for Delhi visitors.

I really wanted to practice my photography while in India and this place is a wealth of picturesque subjects. I went early as recommended by a friend and I totally got lost. I entered at 6am but did not leave till almost 11am. They do not allow tripods but you will still find ample shooting locations.

The site is very interesting and well maintained. The guide was excellent and spent a good deal of time explaining the history and pointing out facts related to the architecture of the buildings.

Wife and I went here and spent a couple hours wandering. So impressive and for her it was even nicer as she saw it in 2008 while it was being renovated. I would recommend this to any visitor. On our way in a foreigner said it was expensive but I thought it was well worth the 250 rupees and I... More

This is part of a much bigger complex and the tomb is huge. It is built using red sandstone and is definitely worth the visit. Entry fee is 250 inr per person.
