“A highlight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Very special. We visited at sunset and I highly recommend this time of day as the lit was just wonderful on the fantastic monument.

“Do it before Agra and Taj”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

THis building inspired the Taj mahal and we could see why. It is beautiful.
Go there at the end of the day or at the begining to have the light reflect on the red stones. A Must in Delhi

“Quite a history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I didn't hire a guide but found out the history in bits and pieces. Though there is Nizzamudin Darga close by and if you visit Humanyun's also visit the Darga.

For some reason this is not very popular among tourists...a must visit place...for the architecture, for the beautiful monument

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

What a pleasant surprise it was in terms of cleanliness at this historic place. The peace here relaxed me without explanation and i wanted to sit there for hours just being there. It was so peaceful, clean and inviting. Not too much crowd either so a great experience.. will visit again soon.
