  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
    Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.

Humayun's Tomb Humayun's Tomb Humayun's Tomb

Beautifully designed by the Persian architect Mirak Mirza Ghiyath, Humayun's Tomb is the final resting place of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. He was the second Mughal Emperor of India, the first being Babur. It was built in 1569, 14 years after his death, by his wife Biga Begum. Considering its architectural beauty and historic significance, it was recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the year 1993.


It is also the first Indian architecture in which red sandstone has been used liberally along with the use of white and black marble. The complex of this mausoleum also houses the tombs of Hamida Begum (Akbar's mother), Dara Shikoh (Shah Jahan's son) and Bahadur Shah II.


The tomb is located in the centre of a geometrically fashioned garden. The garden is based on the concept of char baah (four fold) style with pools joined by channels. In Islam it is believed that Jannat( paradise) is set amidst a garden with water flowing through it. This mausoleum has been built keeping in mind the idea of Jannat.


The tomb was built at the center of a plinth which is 7 meters high. The central dome towers to a height of 140 feet. The tomb reflects the elements of Persian and Indian architecture. The Persian architecture can be best seen in arched alcoves, double dome and corridors. And the Indian architecture beautifully reflects in the kiosks.


Humayun's Tomb can be visited throughout the week, except for on Friday.
