Great Place to start the day with a sip of chai on the way. The most loved monument by admirers of Islamic building technique encompassed in Hindu flourishes - this tomb is a great experience signifying space, planning, detail and aesthetics. Do visit it on a bit cloudy day as the enormous structure offers little shade to tourists who are... More

If you have already visited Taj Mahal, you may find some similarities here, as it is said Taj Mahal somehow followed its design. The place itself is not quite large but beautifully designed.

If you are into photography I totally recommend to go as early as you can to see this place and you will skip a lot of tourism. This is a beautiful place and yes it similar architecture to the Taj Mahal but definitely has his own essence.

Located prominently, this is a great destination for history lovers and those who dont have much time to visit Taj Mahal in Agra.... Having ample parking space and very cheap entry tickets, this is a must watch for tourists visiting delhi.... A great place to explore Mughal Architecture and culture...

We tried to squeeze in as many sites in New Delhi during our two day visit and this was one of the best trips - thoroughly recommend a visit. We loved the gardens, the wildlife and the architecture. Whilst we hadn't visited the Taj Mahal at this time we since have and can see the similarities.
