A lovely Red building with lovely garden. The building structure is almost similar to Taj Mahal. I traveled in July last week and reached their by afternoon, sun was too hard on me. make sure you have good hats and ready to make a mile. It would be good to visit early morning or in the evening in summer.

Humayuns tomb is equally as astounding in architecture and detail as the Taj. If you're in Delhi don't miss out!

This was a derelict site when I first came here many years ago. Since then it has been done up nicely. Once you enter the complex, you leave behind the dusty busy city and it is quiet and clean. There is enough to admire about the architecture even if you aren't into architecture and if you just want a quiet... More

This site is ideally situated near the Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway station and is also connected by DTC buses, autos, taxis. Built in a vast spread out area with green trees of oranges, it gives a nostalgic feeling of how it would have been in those days of Mugal ira. Once you climb the stairs to the main Mukbara, which is... More
