It was planned and built like an enclosed garden tomb in line with the style of the Humayun Tomb. Although, sometimes it is derided for the lack of proportioning & the quality of material used for its construction. In spite of it, the place is frequently visited architecture & history enthusiats, as well as curious travelers.

This is the Mughlai alcove I turn to when I can’t go on a road trip. The location makes a photographers fingers itch and to the simpleton it restores hope that “history maybe isn’t all that boring if it made something that cool, surely”. There are sandstone benches around the gardens (bagh), they are the best seats in the house... More

Quite and peaceful place in the heart of delhi. The tomb and the surroundings have been recently renovated. The layout of the garden tomb complex is very impressive. The Safdarjung Tomb is dedicated to Mirza Muqeem Abul-Mansur Khan, who was also known as Safdarjung. He was the viceroy of Oudh under Muhammad Shah and prime minister under Ahmad Shah

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...
