Latest update: Many Delhiites seem to remember seeing this monument at the busy Mathura Road- Lodi Road intersection, very near Nizamuddin and heralding the heritage buildings within the Humayun’s Tomb complex. It has a striking blue dome but is surprisingly called “Sabz Burj” or “Green Dome”. Perhaps that was the original color of the tiles, somehow changed to blue during later restorations…
The structure is actually a tomb, but the person buried within remains unidentified…a sort of theme running through many of Delhi’s monuments. The Sabz Burj was later used as -you will never guess it-a police station! Yes, that was during the British Raj. Today it is just a traffic circle in a very busy locality of Delhi.
