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

I beautiful, quiet, and peaceful place in the heart of delhi. The tomb and the surrounding have been recently renovated. There is very little crowd there, so its a good place to go and relax and spend some with yourself or with friends and family. Kids can enjoy the open space and lush lawns.

Unlike Humayun's tomb, this tomb is not that crowded. In fact when i went there i could hardly see any tourist. This place is mostly inhabited by love birds. You can see them everywhere, some come from Lodi Garden which is very nearby. But i can understand, why couples get attract to this place, the place is really magnificent. I... More

If you are visiting the spectacular Lodi Gardens - be sure to also exit the SW gate and walk West (right out of the gate) along Lodi Road until you get to the traffic lights. Cross there to get to this spectacular if neglected tomb of Safdarjung. As with other locations, early morning or later afternoon are good times -... More

The place is very nice. You have a building (the tomb) that is majestic, in the centre. Around it is a garden, which is symmetrically laid. When we went, we even spotted a peacock and an eagle. A very good place for walking at an entry fee of Rs.5. If you stay in Delhi and have no where to go... More

This is my favourite tomb in Delhi. The architecture is beautiful though the tomb and ground could do with a little TLC. This does not distract from the fabulous interior of the tomb with exquisite ceilings. Make sure you look up at the ceilings, you won't be dissapointed.

To me the place seemed to be isolated as there was no body in the vicinity that seemed to be interested in the tomb as such. The place only had few people who seemed to be enjoying the gardens for their lunch or nap rather than the main attraction itself. The tomb in contrast also stands in dire need of... More
