It's quite well maintained as compared to many other monuments of Delhi. Also, its closeness to the Jor Bagh Metro station makes it easy to visit on foot.

Anyone interested in architecture and archeology should visit Safdarjung's Tomb. It is a unique example of a post Mughal era structure that is built in the Mughal style, but with aspects of a later era.

This tomb is right in the heart of the city and we came across it while walking on the streets early in the morning...Because there are many landmarks, one tends to skip this one........but that is a mistake.......this place is often empty and one can thoroughly enjoy the architecture in peace.........Dont give this one a skip...the architecture is well maintained........

The arches of Safdarjung Tomb are beautifully designed and surroundings are well maintained. Situated in heart of Delhi covered with Neem and Mangos trees. Pigeons residing in tomb mar the beauty. You can also spot couples enjoying. You can spend good two hours.

This place is well maintained. You will find tomb. It's on main road. When we visited the place we were the only families. But the landscaping is good . Garden is good.

Smaller compared to Humayun's Tomb and less verdant, this monument has its own merits. The arches are very beautifully designed and being accessible from the center of Delhi it is worth a good two hours or more.

This is a tomb from the period of Mughals and is old heritage building of Delhi. Earlier it was not so well maintained but during past years lot of things have been improved and now it is very well maintained. It truly depicts the Muhal time by its architecture. Good for history lovers.

If you are history lover, this place is going to make your excited. I would suggest it would be better if you could read about it before visiting the place. This will help you connect with it. Typically, an hour visit,
