Don’t miss this if you’re in Delhi

This is a wonderful building, less visited than some of the other highlights of Delhi. It’s a great example of Mughal architecture which anyone interested in such buildings should definitely make the effort to see.

We visited the Mughal Emperor Humayun's garden tomb, which is a UNESCO World Heritage, being built in 1570. It's the first garden tomb, that has been built in India.
We were impressed by this dazzling octogonal mausoleum in the early Mughal architectural style. We saw that the mausoleum was surmounted by a double dome 42.5 meter high, clad in marble with colonnaded kiosks

Altogether, I highly recommend to visit wonderful Humayun's garden tomb, whose early Mughal architecture will later lead to the construction of the Taj Mahal!!!

Well worth the short visit and photo-op
Dec 2020
Also known as the Mini Taj Mahal. This site is well worth visiting. You must have cell phone reception the only way to buy tickets is via cell phone now. There are guides inside that will show you around for a tip. The inside is impressive but neglected, on a good sunny day it's a great photo opportunity. All-in maybe 45 minutes tour.

We visited this sight and had difficulty purchasing the ticket because we didn’t have cell phone connection. You must buy online and provide Passport for ID. Be aware of staff pretending to help guide you then wanting payment. Was interesting trip and I’d recommend going.
