Humayan's Tomb is worth a visit. An early predecessor to the Taj Mahal, colossal grounds and great views.

The main mausoleum building was restored recently and truly beautiful with ornate sandstone and 4-way symmetry. It predates the Taj Mahal but has much the same look and feel, just smaller and less majestic, and with far less crowds and touts. We visited in the late afternoon when the slanting, golden sun was shining nicely.

I found this to be very impressive from the outside. Not so impressive on the inside, but beautiful grounds and a great way to burn an hour or so, while in Delhi.

These places are really good examples of the mogul empire. But when you have seen one you have seen them all. Worth a visit though. Xx
