On our visit it was a public holiday and the excitable girls were neither disciplined nor orderly, however about 20 minutes later they then lined up and still as noisily filed out of the site. We now had our peace and quiet to walk around the grounds and take in the magnificent architecture and carvings.Although the fountains were not working... More

We left Lodi , The Garden Restaurant and proceeded to the tomb of powerful Mirza Muqim Abul-Mansur Khan, entitled Safdar-Jang, who was the viceroy of Awadh and Kashmir under weak Muhammad Shah (1719-48) and later on prime minister under weaker Ahmad Shah Bahadur (1748-54) . The tomb on the pattern of Humayun’s tomb was built in about 1754 by Nawab... More

The tomb houses a good architecture similar to HUMAYUN TOMB. The nearest metro station is JOR BAGH. It is also close to Safdarjung airport. The architecture is good & also has a big garden. It is also near Lodi Gardens.

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
