The tomb is really huge and greenery around the tomb makes it so lively despite the fact it is tomb. Irony, isn't it? You'll see lot of youngsters here. Maybe in a... More

This is a nice tomb to visit as you can see another example of exquisite Mughal architecture - however Humayan's Tomb is much nicer and of more significance, so if you're stuck for time, visit Humayan's tomb instead.

I stopped by this place on the way to Lodhi Garden from Dili Haat. It would be an interesting place to see if it was free. I am not sure it is worth the 200 rupee price for foreginers. The place needs some upkeep.
