Humayun’s Tomb, Delhi

The morning after we arrived in Delhi, we visited Humayun’s Tomb, the magnificent mausoleum of the second ruler of the Mughal dynasty. The Archeological Survey of India has partnered with the Aga Khan Foundation to restore the gardens around the tomb as well as the structure itself, and they have done an excellent job. After the bustle of Varanasi, we appreciated the atmosphere and open space.

  1. I have visited (Dehli) India some 20 years back, got the opportunity to see the beauty of Architect built during Mughal Empire. I don’t have the words to explain the constructions and designs of all the moquse & tomb and other building. I only can suggest one should personally visit these places and enjoy the marvellous work of Mughals and Islamic architecture.
