Architectural jewel in the heart of Delh
Hot, dirty and crowded Delhi usually drives all travelers away as quickly as possible, but there are also very beautiful architectural monuments hidden in the large gardens without crowds of tourists. One of them is impressive Humayun's tomb lying just 2.5 kilometers south-east from India Gate. This building is a beautiful example of Mughal fabulous architecture.
In front of Isa Khan Tomb
After the taxi driver drops you at a remote parking lot, you will enter to the extensive gardens. There is not only the most beautiful Humayun's tomb, but also a number of other interesting buildings.
The first tomb on the way is Isa Khana, which is in separate small walled garden. You will get in only in the case, when the long-lasting reconstruction will be finished. If not, it is best to climb the wall and admire this building from above.
Isa Khan Tomb
Isa Khan Tomb is not very monumental, but it is very nice, especially because of its symmetry. It is less than 500 years old.
Afsarwala tomb and mosque
Just a few meters further is another small tomb of Afsarwala with follow-up mosque. Afsarwala was an important official of the famous Mughal leader Akbar called the Great.
Humayun 's Tomb
Fabulous Humayun Tomb lies in the middle of perfectly symmetrical gardens with an area of 350×350 meters.
Humayun, the second Mughal ruler
Mughal Empire reached in its greatest heyday from Afghanistan through Pakistan and covered almost all of India.
Fountains at the tomb
There are the same fountains on each world side, so you will always have the tomb nicely lighted with a fountain in the foreground whenever you come here.
Garden Char Bagh
Garden, where the tomb is located, is called Char Bagh and is very well maintained and in addition free of trash.
Gate to the garden
The gates to the garden are also very nice.
