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

A great place to be at sunrise with your camera. Or any time of day for some peace and quiet, and be transported back to Old Delhi. Not crowded, very inexpensive entry ticket . . . a must-see amongst Delhi's many historic sights which I particularly recommend in the early morning.

Once you get past the gates, this tomb transports you to a different world altogether. The landscaped gardens are very pleasing to the eye, and ideal for spending an hour away from the hustle and bustle of Delhi. The toilets for visitors are very clean.

Very nice and charming tomb with gardens. Looks like the larger Taj Mahal. Advantage of this Safdarjung tomb is that is is a very quit place. Not many visitors, you van walk around very peacefully. Loved being here!

It's a beautiful monument. You should visit it if you stay in Delhi for long enough. I would suggest you to keep time for the Red Fort, Purana Qila, Delhi Market, Qutb Minar, Jama Masjid and Jantar Mantar, before this. * If you're thinking of choosing between this one and Humayun's tomb, go for this one. * Spend 30-45 minutes...

Very beautiful and peaceful attraction. It's in a short walk from Jor Bagh train station. By far my favorite.

Greetings, Safdarjung Tomb is a very nice monument. It looks like TAJ MAHAL of Agra. There is not so much to visit in it but you can sit near the garden's and listen to chirping of Peacocks.

a little quieter than your typical visit to an indian monument, but of all the historical attractions i've seen in delhi, this one is by far my favorite. picturesque, relatively hawker-free and mostly clean! i think this place is under-rated.

If Humayun`s Tomb was the first tomb built enclosed by a garden by the Moghul rulers in Delhi, Safdarjung was the last such.It also suffers in comparison in its scale & beauty with its predecessor.This about 160 year old Tomb is enclosed in 300 metres with a large garden divided in to squares with tanks & fountains along the central...
