"Little Taj Mahal "

It is a nice architectural structure in late Mughali period. I felt it like a little Taj Mahal. It is a calm and quite place.

From the outside this looks reasonable, but once inside as the gardens open out before you and you walk closer to the tomb, it becomes quite special. Although we did see a member of staff collecting litter, it did appear a problem - perhaps the idiots who drop it could try and remember where they are.

Not too many people know about this place though it is only a stone's throw from the popular Lodhi Gardens. Its architecuture makes it worth visiting, even if it is a bit similar to Humayun's Tomb.

If you don't like crowded areas, but still want a dash of history, this is the place to visit. It is the tomb of an Indian Emperor, built in 1753. So it definitely is history and a worthy visit.

Architectural gems of different eras are scattered all across the city. One such monumental gem is Safdarjung Tomb. Safdarjung Tomb, also known as "the last flicker in the lamp of Mughal architecture" is the last monumental tomb garden of the Mughals. It was planned and built like an enclosed garden tomb in line with the style of the Humayun Tomb.... More

This place was not on the list of places our tour company suggested but we decided to explore it ourselves anyway. From the entrance gate to the main building, the place was really amazing. We visited in the late afternoon, and had the place almost totally to ourselves. The only disappointment was that, like many of the 'lesser monuments' in... More

This place is one of the must visits in Delhi. The tomb is styled similar to that of the Taj Mahal and is very close to Lodhi Gardens another must visit.

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
