Great pictures here, well managed. A security guard did follow me around wanting to take my picture for tip money, midday the sun could be intense and right outside the entrance lot of local people trying to aggressively sell you souvenirs, which could be overwhelming.

Humayun's tomb is the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun in Delhi. It was the first garden-tomb on the India. It was also the first structure to use red sandstone at such a scale. It which houses the graves of Empress Bega Begum, Hamida Begum, and also Dara Shikoh, great-great-grandson of Humayun and son of the later Emperor Shah Jahan. It designed using Asian and Persian architecture.

Uncrowded,calm and magnificent.Worth visiting solo or with family.Maintaince is good though the stairs leading to first floor are bit high and can cause problem to small kids and elderly visitors.
An interactive tour using VR or audio guide or video presentation to relate History of the place would make it more attractive to students and others too.

Humayun the second of great Mughal ruler honored his favorite barber with a beautiful tomb, located next to his very own magnificent mausoleum.Its proximity to the main tomb and the fact that it is the only other structure within the main tomb complex suggests its importance, however there are no inscriptions suggesting as to who is interred therein, the name Barbers tomb is the local name of the structure, hence still in use.

A beautiful memorial place with lots to see around and relax in the parks. Can be done on your own but if you want to dive into history, do hire a guide.

Though, not recommended to visit in Summer.

We had a guide as part of our tour and it was very informative and helpful. By yourself, you can appreciate the site, but not the history so much.
