Situated in the heart of the Capital. The tomb is well maintained and a must attraction for the Photographers. The delight is the greenery around the monument. An excellent symbol of mughal architecture.

On a day tour of Delhi and New Delhi. This place was fascinating. Happy to have gone. Among other things the decent English language plaques says this place is the prototype for the Taj Mahal.

This is regarded as the building on which the Taj Mahal is based. It is an amazing piece of architecture which is well worth visiting. It is built of red sandstone and white marble which gives it a very distinctive look.

We visited on a Tuesday morning and found it pleasantly uncrowded. Large school groups began arriving around noon though.

Even though crowded and a good amount of restoratio was taking place,Humayun's tomb conveyed an air of serenity. The whole site was uplifting and if as the legend goes it was the basis for the idea of the Taj Mahal I can only say that monument was predestined for all its gloryits

In my opinion, one of the best attractions in Delhi , quieter than the other tombs and red fort . Beautiful building in great surroundings with a relaxed feel to it . Allow yourself a couple of hours to wander around this amazing attraction .
