Anyone interested in Mughal history and ancient Delhi must visit here once. Peaceful and calm. One time visit for tourists. One advise.. Shouldn't be on top of your list of places to visit.

This resembles Taj Mahal in manyway and the beauty of the various architectural components in this monument is a true treat to our eyes. This is one of the very well maintained structures of the Mughals in Delhi. From any angle, the structure gives you good view of the ancient architecture and its uniqueness. Garden and fountains are the freebies... More

The more time you spend at Humayun's tomb, the more it grows on you. Can spend hours just gazing at the monuments and the trees and birds nearby. the adjoining monuments make for an interesting complex

I thought it should be just a tomb,but turned out to be a like a fort/palace. Good place to visit. Very large garden. Good for taking pictures.

The tomb is worth a visit. But the most pleasant experience would be seeing the local people there. Family gathering; playing at the lawn; even a poor teenager carrying a water bucket working there, and still, a big smile on his face. A warm experience for me..

Although much smaller in scale and wow-factor than the Taj Mahal, the tomb was still very beautiful in its own right. A lovely walk if you have the time to dawdle and take in all the scenery.

Humayun's Tomb, an example of Mughul architecture that was an inspiration for the Taj Mahal, is a must see if you're visiting Delhi. Nor non-India tourists, the cost is just 200 rupees to enter, where you'll find several tombs, gardens, and a good primer on the rulers of Delhi in the mid-15th century.
