During my stays in New Delhi, one fine day I thought of going to visit Humayun’s Tomb. Located near the crossing of Mathura road and Lodhi road, this magnificent garden tomb is the first substantial example of Mughal architecture in India. Being an Indian I paid Rs.10 but for foreigners they charge Rs.250. Well there is no charge for camera but they don’t allow tripod. I had really hard time with the security guy. Finally they allow me to bring tripod inside after convincing them that I won’t use inside.
It was built in 1565 A.D. nine years after the death of Humayun, by his senior widow Bega Begam. Inside the walled enclosure the most notable features are the garden squares (chaharbagh) with pathways water channels, centrally located well proportional mausoleum topped by double dome.
