Humayun's Tomb

The Mughals have contributed greatly to the art and architecture in Delhi. The tombstones built by them are masterpieces that deserve a visit. Humayun’s Tomb is one such monument that houses the grave of Emperor Humayun, his wife, Hamida Begum and the son of emperor Shah Jahan, Dara Shikoh. This is one of the first monuments to use red sandstone extensively in its construction.

Visitors to this monument are welcomed by sprawling gardens that have been maintained beautifully. These gardens, known as Char Bagh, are spread over 30 acres of land. The pathway that leads to the main tomb consists of many smaller monuments, out of which a few stood way before the construction of Humayun’s Tomb.

The tomb is located close to Nizamuddin East in Delhi close to the Purana Qila or the Dina Panah, a fort founded by Humayun in 1533. The mausoleum designed by Persian designer Mirak Mirza Ghiyat takes a lot of inspiration from the Taj Mahal and is strikingly similar. The tomb represents a new trend in Mughal architecture that was later used in many other monuments across the country.

The area has been recognized by the UNESCO as a world heritage site and is definitely worth a visit. The best time to visit the monument is late in the afternoon when the sunlight washes the monument in a golden hue and brings out the richness of the red sandstone and the greenery around it.
