Do not miss this. What a fantastic landmark! A really brilliant example of Mughal architecture. A large area to walk around, my 3 year old loved running around but my mother-in-law found it a bit tiring, We had to pay 250 Rupees, my Indian relations paid 10!

I don't think anything else could have set me off onto a great visit to New Delhi like my visit to the Humayun's Tomb site. Historic building with great landscaping. The name doesn't do it justice as if you haven't googled it or heard about it before, you're likely to spend the better part of the journey to the site... More

A must see if you're in the city. Very tranquil walk in a beautiful park-like setting. Excellent historical perspective from a local guide I grabbed at the entrance.

It amazes me the extent that the Moghuls went to honor their dead. For a mausoleum, like the Taj Mahal in Agra, this place is beautiful. Don't miss it on your tour of New Delhi!

Situated in Old Delhi. A nice place to see the might of Raj. The Tomb is located in a large compound. Challenging for old people, kids and people with disability to move around.

Humayun's Tomb is a well preserved Mughal monument. It was commissioned by his first wife in about 1565. It is set within large tranquil, beautifully maintained gardens. Since that time the garden has gradually filled with tombs of his descendants and entourage. Several Mughal emperors are also buried inside Humayun’s mausoleum. The tomb stands on a massive platform. The building... More

Preferable to the Red fort. Fewer visitors and in generally better condition. An interesting place to spend an hour.

Having visited India this time to photograph wildlife in different national parks, the visit to Humayun's Tomb in Delhi was a mere coincidence. And a fortunate one too. First of all the architecture. Yes it does bring to mind the Taj Mahal for some aspects. But the Taj Mahal is an architectural masterpiece that impresses itself on you and your... More

This was a beautiful architectural tomb by the Mughals. Wonderful place to relax and at sunset you can hear the prayers from the mosques nearby. The monuments looks stunning at sunset. This is another place where all the youngsters hang around due to the beautiful clean gardens.
