Very impressive and cool spot. Well worth visiting. It is really helpful to have a guide. They will offer their services at the entrance. Should cost around 300rs and will be well worth the money.

One of the attractions that you must see, even if you only have a limited time in Delhi. Some very steep steps going to the upper level

Domed like the Taj Mahal, Humayun's Tomb was so spectacular to be able to explore and see up close. We had a really great afternoon wandering through the gardens and into the other tombs. I highly recommend adding it into your trip, (but don't pay any more than 100rupees to get there). We hired an auto-rickshaw driver for the afternoon,... More

Khan Market and the Antique places in Sundar Nagar are also worth visiting. Avoid crowds on Janpath and nearby in the... More

There are some great photo opportunities to be had here with the many stunning buildings and lovely shady trees. 30 acres of beautiful architecture and manicured grounds for $AU5 is a bargain and despite the bus loads of school kids - who were delighted to pose for photos - this attraction not feel crowded. You an experience relative isolation which... More

The inspiration for the Taj Mahal and although not as big it's still impressive and well worth a visit in its own right. Lovely gardens and other buildings close by. Not as crowded either. Loved it!

Amazing tomb with great architecture. The building itself is well worth the visit. This is an historic site. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the grounds. The outside is much more interesting than internally. It is also a great venue for people watching.
