Pic-A-Day Project: The Last Flicker

Safdarjung Tomb in Delhi- Last Flicker in Mughal grandeur
Safdarjung Tomb in Delhi- Last Flicker in Mughal grandeur

A relatively unknown monument in the plethora that adorn Delhi, Safdarjung’s Tomb was the last important building created by the mighty Mughals. Architects and puritans have often mourned its lack of subtlety and refinement when compared to earlier Mughal monuments, some even pinning the reason on the culture of that period itself -when showiness, bawdiness, nautch girls, and hedonism held sway over the weakening emperors. But to us, this is a lovely monument and an abode of peace in the chaos of central Delhi. Have you been there yet, folks?

Thanks Priyadarshi Dutta, we are loving your pics!
