About Humayun's Tomb

One of the first fine examples of Mughal architecture in India, Humayun's Tomb is a magnificent garden tomb located in the eastern part of Delhi. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, its onion-shaped dome is a forerunner of the classic Mughal dome which became more shapely with time. The garden squares with its water channels, pathways and gardens are beautifully restored. Humayun's mausoleum is situated in the center topped by a Persian-style double-dome marble structure. The complex also incorporates the tomb of Isa Khan, the Nai ka Gumbad and Nili Gumbad. You can see intricately carved arches around the whole perimeter of the building. The cenotaph of the ruler is placed in a large decorated room on the upper-tier whereas the real grave of Humayun lies in the basement. You can see an amalgamation of Persian and Indian cultures in the architecture of this historical building.
