Popular attraction with different style from others. Liked it very much, despite of the heat. Be careful with guides, they ask too much

It was a lovely trip we all shared to Humayun's tomb. Stunning and relaxing. There are some books you can purchase near the entryway and also post cards here. They have books for children on the tomb

Majestic and mystic architecture and gardens. I can wander and sit days in those gardens imagining life at the times of the Mughals.

It was not a very wise decision to visit Humayun's Tomb in the month of April. The summer had already started and the sun was loud. Even though we enjoyed the trip quite much. It is like any other beautiful historical place. So big that you would need 4-5 hours to see it completely. We could not visit every corner... More

We visited Humayans Tomb in the morning and it was quite quiet. Lots of space to walk around and you can definately see the history. A guard asked if we wanted a quick tour which we said yes to. We gave him a tip as well for the history and we had a good look around. Recommended on your trip... More

A good place to visit with friends or family. Nowadays a popular spot for the pre and post bridal photo shoots which imply the natural beauty.
