Somehow this one is not on the routine tourists list nor has it become a Delhiites picnic spot. So it continues to be calm, serene and tranquil. Step in from the main road immediately outside, and you are transported to an alternate era. Majestic and awe inspiring, though less opulent than the humayuns tomb and the taj, probably because it...

I've been visiting Delhi for over 40 years and only just made it to Safdarjung's Tomb. Let's keep quiet about this undiscovered gem. Architecturally it's nothing out of the ordinary and the gardens could be brought to life quite easily. But as it stands, it's peaceful, quiet and tranquil - everything you might not expect from a Delhi monument. PS.... More

We headed to Safdarjung's Tomb first thing in the morning, and the atmosphere was absolutely wonderful. It was quiet and serene, and the majesty of the tomb enveloped us as we walked around the grounds. It's not an elaborate structure, but it's a nice place to spend 30 minutes. You might even catch a few loving couples hiding out in... More

A great place to be at sunrise with your camera. Or any time of day for some peace and quiet, and be transported back to Old Delhi. Not crowded, very inexpensive entry ticket . . . a must-see amongst Delhi's many historic sights which I particularly recommend in the early morning.

Once you get past the gates, this tomb transports you to a different world altogether. The landscaped gardens are very pleasing to the eye, and ideal for spending an hour away from the hustle and bustle of Delhi. The toilets for visitors are very clean.

Very nice and charming tomb with gardens. Looks like the larger Taj Mahal. Advantage of this Safdarjung tomb is that is is a very quit place. Not many visitors, you van walk around very peacefully. Loved being here!

It's a beautiful monument. You should visit it if you stay in Delhi for long enough. I would suggest you to keep time for the Red Fort, Purana Qila, Delhi Market, Qutb Minar, Jama Masjid and Jantar Mantar, before this. * If you're thinking of choosing between this one and Humayun's tomb, go for this one. * Spend 30-45 minutes...

Very beautiful and peaceful attraction. It's in a short walk from Jor Bagh train station. By far my favorite.
