It is a symbol of the glorious history of India. Go here early morning or mid afternoon to avoid huge crowds. Take a trip through the tomb of a Mughal emperor.

The tomb and other buildings were attractive but I also thought that the garden was of interest with all the channels of waterand tree plantings. You can imagine that in it's day it would have been a beautiful oasis in Delhi.

What a start to a 12 day visit. Fantastic place to start your tour of India and Delhi. Definetly a place not to miss. The day we went it was raining but it only added to the deep colours of the stonework

This is the tomb of emporer Humayun, one of the sultanat rulers - also known as the slave dynasty. The architecture is different from mughal one.

Humayun's Tomb is a popular tourist landmark in Delhi. The tomb is located in the center of a huge complex. There are gardens all around the tomb. The complex is well maintained.

This is the kind of place you need to take your time to visit, feel and enjoy. Amazing Mughal style, the energy that could be felt here is extraodinary. There arr plenty of gardens, areas to walk around and explore. Take your time!!! 1.30 to 2 hours will worth it!!!!

Worth checking out if you haven't been all around Delhi and need to see popular attractions. Not much to attract beyond the first visit.

Not a positive experience. Old architecture that is in poor shape. Long drive to get there in traffic. A lot of effort for a sight that is really not that significant. Want to see a real tomb go to the Taj Majal
