Let me start by sugesting that you take water if it is hot. You are going to walk a lot, but it is worth it. I'm so glad we went.

As with other reviews, this place was not unlike the Taj Mahal. It is in a very nice setting, with well kept gardens. Well worth a visit.

Humayun’s Tomb is really worth to visit. It is also called “the Red Taj Mahal” because of the history of the building. It is a bit far from the city train station. Neverteless, the walk let one see also other interesting buildings. Also the surrounding park is very nice. I love that place.

Great Monument! the complex is beautiful and an epitome of Mughal Architecture. The green lawns and the garden called Char Bagh (4 gardens) give it a serenity in the midst of a hectic and crowded city of Delhi. The tomb of Isa Khan which is within the complex is also an interesting monument. Finding space to Park could be a... More

A great place to soak in some sun and history on a winter afternoon. Wonderful to see the place in such great shape after the restoration. Must see!

Whats not to like? This a beautiful garden with the tomb of the Emperor Humayun. I have been visiting since I was a child and have seen the place evolve as a must for visitors. With renovations in recent years, the various tombs (several side tombs, which I do recommend a visit to) just look better and are easier to... More

Even if not well versed in Mughal architecture, one can't help but be impressed by the symmetry and scale of Humayun's tomb, enhanced by the pleasant promenade up to its garden enclosure. Up close it's less impressive than the Taj, the red stone sections of its exterior rather dull compared to glimmering marble of its famous younger brother. It would... More
