World Heritage Monument, first garden tomb in India, and an inspiration to the Taj itself… This, my dear Delhi lovers, is the Tomb of the second Mughal Emperor Humayun. It was built by the wife of the emperor and its location near the Yamuna was selected so that the king could rest in peace near the Sufi saint Nizamuddin. Within the main tomb lie several other members of the royal family, you can see their graves in every chamber here! We certainly wouldn’t want to step into this tomb after dark, would you?
Harsh Shah- thank you for this fabulous photograph!
