In contrast to earlier monuments in the city , the aesthetic decadence and moral decline of the Mughal Empire is summed up by the tomb of Safdarjung, an upstart Persian who managed in all but name to seize the position of Emperor after the destruction of 1739 and when Delhi had already entered into its long Twilight. Driven out in... More

This low-key landmark in Delhi is really great. It is impossible not to link it with Agra's Taj Mahal in terms of architecture and layout, but the fact that there are hardly many visitors at the same time, no food restrictions either and no fences around the patches of garden (which ruin Taj Mahal's complex a bit, making it look...

Built in 1754 by Nawab Shuja-ud-daulah for his father who was entitled Safdarjung, this is last garden tomb of Mughal era. The main building is extremely beautiful. There is intricate work in its ceiling. The best season for visit to this attraction is October to March, when weather is good for leisurely monument viewing. Connectivity is extremely good. Jorbagh metro... More

This place is close to the Lodi Gardens and it was so quiet here when we visited. I think most people go to Humayun's Tomb instead so it was easy to have this place almost completely to ourselves, it was just lovely.

If there is any other place besides the lotus temple in Delhi where you can get absolute peace then this is it. Very well maintained and the quiet and deserted feel just makes it so exquisite, Given safdarjung wasn't a big ruler by himself the architecture is just magnificent. Nearest metro is Jor bagh. You wont find much crowd here,come... More

Safdarjung's Tomb is centrally located place on Safdarjung Airport Road. The place offers a treat to eyes with its architectural splendor. The place is well maintained and worth visiting for its historical value. Signage is good and offers glimpses of bygone era. Entrance ticket needed & is reasonably priced ( approx. 2 US$). You may use your own vehicle (plenty... More

Built in 1754, Safdarjung’s Tomb is the last piece of Mughal style Architecture. This is a marble and stonework mausoleum in New Delhi, India. This place is well maintained, and it is worth a visit. I search for peaceful places in Delhi and this is one of them (no crowd + no couple). Nearest metro station is Jor Bagh.

The first temple I stumbled across in India, when heading to the nearby Lodi Gardens. A typical, if little run down Indian temple experience. The grounds were well kept but areas of the temple were crumbling and there was no water in the decorative pools. Lots of courting couples there presumably as the area was generally quiet! Ok but not... More

Situated at the end of Lodhi road, this 18th century tomb is a must-visit for any history buff. Even if you're not one, head there if you want some peace and quiet in the heart of the city. Unlike other tourist attractions, not many come here so you can explore, debate and marvel at the architecture in peace. There is... More
