humayun's tomb is a one of the prettiest tomb of the many tombs we visited in india, second after Taj Mahal, IMHO. One must know the story to truly appreciate the building. From a not-so-famous to a very well known sultan because of his wife's devotion to him must be one hell of a love story.

Best time to visit is dawn - it is open from sunrise to sunset. you are not allowed to carry food/water inside. there is little museum inside which has lovely photos from the past, and an 'absolutely MUST buy illustrated book for children - published by Aga Khan Foundation.

For me this rivals the Taj Mahal, which I guess makes sense given the Taj was inspired by this. There are a few buildings on the site so to truly explore you should set aside about one to two hours.

Loved exploring Humayun's tomb & the surrounding buildings and garden - it really beautiful! We went pretty early in the morning which was really nice & meant we avoided the crowds.

You must brave the traffic and leave New Delhi to actually take in much history. Humayun's Tomb is a must in the absorption of Indian's history. Take your time, explore the entire building, walk slowly and notice the inscribed marble, the carved screens and learn about what the gardens would have looked like in their original form.

One of my favorite of the tombs but got a shake down by a guard who stepped in as a volunteer guide. He walked me around the wall and then into a little alcove and then insisted upon a tip. Not cool.

It's for all architecture lovers. If you are interested in ancient architecture ....visit it. Amazing place...you will wonder how men can construct this kind of building. Go timely to avoid rush for tickets.
