Old Mughal glory wrapped in the delhi fog, unfortunately all my photos are gone. But this is a monument worthy of admiration by us mere mortals and just look at what india was and just be inspired.

A beautiful monument set in pleasant grounds. We were impressed by the good standard of maintenance and cleanliness - not common in Delhi

Humayun's tomb, built for the second Mughal emperor, launched a great Mughal architectural legacy - even the Taj, which was built by Humayun's great-grandson, was inspired by it.

I went on the same day as to the Lodhi gardens. I had limited time and had I known that Lodhi had so many tombs similar to this one I would have just gone to Lodhi garden.
