Definitely worth a visit. Interesting history and not expensive. Short cab or tuk tuk ride from town.

Definitely one of our highlights in India. We were lucky to see this in the late afternoon as sun was starting to set, which added a lovely ambience. The symmetry and overall design is beautiful and we have some exceptional photos

Was interested so much in the history of the tomb; finding out that the Taj Mahal was actually built after this will forever remain in my mind.

Our first visit to India and this was one of the highlights. Make sure you have a guide who can explain the culture and history otherwise it's just another monument. The whole atmosphere is delightful and during our visit was enhanced by the vibrancy of young children and families. Well worth a visit.

This was the last place on our itinerary for the day, and it was a wonderful way to end the day. There are a few more places to explore within the Tomb Complex, and Humayun's Tomb is beautiful to behold. Do make it a point to see it on your visit to Delhi!

Wonderful place to visit, not just the shear beauty, but full of history and culture. To make the best of it, I suggest you need a guide who knows the history. You can't get all the details and human side of the significance by just reading about it. It is worth the price to get a tour guide!

This is such a beautifully maintained tomb and garden. Such a pleasure to visit! Wish there was more information about the history of the time period of the tomb.

Set in a wide estate and flanked by several other interesting buildings stands this monument built by the widow Humayun in memory of her late husband. While quite interesting and well worth the visit one cannot help but feel sad for the state of disrepair of this monument. It is a shame that a part of history is left to... More

Nice Big gardens with lots of good spots for Photographs and specially the place offers a lot of running around for the kids as well. Would also remember the place as its related to a Hindi Movie Shooting.
