Quiet and beautiful

Not as busy as some of the attractions in Delhi which meant that we could wander around at our own pace. The building is lovely and the Mughal gardens beautiful.

This was the last enclosed garden-tomb in Delhi,built in the Mughal tradition.It is far less grand in scale compared to Humayun's tomb,and also attracts fewer visitors.If you want to spend some quiet moments in Delhi,this huge garden complex can be considered.

this amazing place is relatively undiscovered by the tourist hordes. if you visit late in the day, when the sun is setting, it's a wonderful peaceful place -- as it should be, it is a tomb after all. the whole place feels as if nothing has changed since it was built hundreds of years ago. no "embellishments" for tourists, no...

A wonderful tomb specially considering it was made for a Vizir. Avoid visiting on Fridays unless there to offer prayers at the Mosque in the complex.

Fading Glory............Safdarjung Tomb Safdarjung and his son would have turned in their graves if they realized that the busy Safdarjung Hospital, Safdarjung Road, Safdarjung Airport and Safdarjung Enclave, all named after Safdarjung, are overrun by people while the colossal Safdarjung tomb, built in his memory, lying nearby is completely ignored by the masses. Looking desolate, the monument raised to salute... More

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.

Safdarjung's Tomb is a sandstone and marble mausoleum in New Delhi, India. It was built in 1754 in the late Mughal Empire style for the statesman Safdarjung, and was described as "the last flicker in the lamp of Mughal architecture".[1] The monument has an ambiance of spaciousness and an imposing presence with its domed and arched red brown and white...
