At a cost of 500 rupees, the entrance fee was a bit steep, however, the monument was impressive. It consists of a large compound housing a number of tombs and mosques, with the main tomb as its centrepiece. You can climb the stairs to the mosque and get a good view of the compound. One of the worthwhile things to... More

It's amazing the number of truly ancient, yet still in good condition, places there are to visit so close together. The main building is very well maintained/restored.

I'd read a great article about ongoing restoration and upliftment efforts in an online magazine called Civil Society (highly recommend!!). We went at 10 am before the crowds began and enjoyed the gardens, monuments, & purchasing mementos handmade by local women (all proceeds support their work).Highly recommend. (The on site snack shack has good coffee, but I only passable eats.... More

It was a good experience to hang out with friends here. It was surprising to know that it was built before Taj Mahal. TAJ MAHAL is a replica in white. Good to see once, and won't take much time also...

We visited this newly restored tomb on a sunny winter afternoon. It is a lovely place and the tomb is beautifully restored as part of a world heritage regeneration project. It gives a better sense of a Mughal garden than the Red fort as there are fountains and shady trees. You can climb up to the terrace and go inside... More

With unlimited labour and money the Mughal emperors seemed to have spared no expense, even in death. This precedes the Taj Mahal by a few emperors but it is a beautiful monument memorializing Humayun and gets you excited for your visit to the many Forts (palaces) built during the Mughal rule in India. Read something about the Mughal period before... More
