You cross it all the time

the blue stone that is used to do the tomb of this structure is a special stone. even in the side tombs of teh humayuns tomb you can see the same blue stone... some of it often fallen in pieces.
worth collecting.

Drive past it
Aug 2018 • Solo
Go towards nizamuddin from ashram side and you could totally drive past it, unnoticed. But be a little aware and Delhi always delights. A bunch of monuments around nizamuddin were recently restored. The blue tiles on this one look so good, I dont know if they're original or restored. But it's a spectacle how half the public just goes by without a glance at this.

Can't miss it if you're near humayuns tomb
Jan 2018 • Solo
If you're anywhere near humayuns tomb.. There's no way you can miss this. It's bang in the middle of the road. A huge landmark for many. Many drive pass it everyday and don't even notice the past they are driving past. It's a beautiful structure, you can recognize it from far away with its blue tomb degrading everyday with delhis rising pollution and no cover from the birds or the rain. It has withstood decades and centuries and will stand by for many more. But if you happen to pass by it, stop a moment and marvel the beauty it lends to an otherwise boring Mathura road.

Very Poorly Maintained !!

Nila Gumbad has a great historical significance but has been clearly neglected across ages & not much has been done on the restoration front to manage the same.

World Heritage Site, built way back in 1624-25 by Abdul Rahim Khan-i-Khana for Miyan Fahim.

It is strange to know that this place which has been declared World Heritage Site recently remained totally neglected for generations and has recently been preserved and repaired and is now part of the World Heritage Site along with Humayun Tomb and other monuments in the vicinity.
Location wise this sturcture is at the back of Humayun Tomb and is next to Nizamuddin Railway station. This was built by Abdul Rahim, the Mughal General and one of the nine gems in Akbar's court for his trusted Miyan Fahim in 1624-25. Its dome which is blue in colour is very attractive to look at. The roof of the monument and its walls are architecture achievements of the time.
Good place to visit a World Heritage Site which is hardly known to people.
