This Humayun's Tomb is very beautiful and we enjoyed very much.
A place which must be seen. We took a lot of pictures under the trees

Located near the crossing of Mathura road and Lodhi road, this magnificent garden tomb is the first substantial example of Mughal architecture in India.

Humayun Tomb
It was built in 1565 A.D. nine years after the death of Humayun, by his senior widow Bega Begam. Inside the walled enclosure the most notable features are the garden squares (chaharbagh) with pathways water channels, centrally located well proportional mausoleum topped by double dome.
There are several graves of Mughal rulers located inside the walled enclosure and from here in 1857 A.D; Lieutenant Hudson had captured the last Mughal emperor Bahadur Shah II

Well...what can I say...it was just mind blowing experience. Truly appreciate the mughal architecture. It is somehow similar to the Tajmahal if you only see the main building's structure. a must visit place for the tourists

We loved this place. It was one of our favorite spots in all of India. It was so neat to check out the architecture of each building or tomb, read about the history, take pictures, and just relax under the trees. It is a great place to have a picnic. Very serene. Unlike many other places in India, it was less busy and had fewer aggressive vendors people begging for money. Once we were inside, we could just sit and enjoy the relative quiet. Each tomb is unique and different. There are tons of parakeets near the grounds too, which can make for lovely pictures.

Didn't know anything about the place and wasn't expecting anything either. The pictures of the place that I saw weren't very appealing either but it was a shocking surprise. The mausoleum was well conserved and is not a very crowded place. The gardens and the silence its a great combination and you can walk around freely without any hassle.

The site itself feature two main attraction, one at the very beginning to the right and the second one at the end of the path straight from the entrance. Both of them are truly worth it. Love to come back to this place.

If you are going to the Taj Mahal after this it would really pump you up for Agra. Worth visiting.
