Awesome location, near Humayun's Tomb. Best time to visit is during winters as the place gets good sunshine. You can relax in the gardens or can have some fun activities with friends and family

This place is the burial of Abdul Rahim Khankhana. The tomb is situated in Nizamuddin East on the Mathura road near Humayun's Tomb in New Delhi. It is a quiet monument, surrounded by lovely garden and the best part is it is not crowded and you can admire its beauty in a moment of quiet reflection. Although not included in... More

This is a beautiful ruin of a tomb, despoiled for the building of Safdarjang's Tomb. Abd al-Rahim was a great courtier and a highly cultivated man. Among other things he was a great patron of manuscript illustration. Jahangir inherited him from Akbar's court--he was one of "the old wolves of the state". A lovely and evocative site.

There is a particular emotional attachment to this monument for those who read couplets written by Rahim in school and getting the substance of life. It becomes additionally emotional as you feel sad that materials from this monument was stripped off to decorate tomb of another big shot of his time, Safdarjung. Why cannot you build a tomb, if you... More

Not too many tourists so picture taking is awesome! Quiet place for picnic too! The park surrounding this site is surrounded by other historic sites and walking areas.

A small and serene complex. The tomb is similar to the Humayun's Tomb, with red sandstone and white marble works, but the finishing touch given to the monument is not as beautiful as that of Humayun's Tomb. Moreover majority of the structure is dilapidated and slowly wearing off with time. Some fine carvings on the walls and ceilings is noticed... More
