Humayun's Tomb Tour


Humayun's Tomb, a royal building of Delhi which stands as a memorial of Mughal emperor is designed by a Persian architect, Mirak Mirza Ghiyath. In fact, Delhi is popular for its historical monuments, forts and temples built by the Mughal dynasty. The first garden tomb of Indian subcontinent is positioned in Nizamuddin East, India near Dina-panah citadel, the Purana Qila which Humayun established in 1533. An interesting thing attached with Humayun’s Tomb is that it was the foremost building made in red stone at such extent.

Besides the main tomb bounded by Humayun, numerous minor monuments dot the pathway following up to it, from the chief doorway in the West, counting one that even pre-dates the key tomb itself, by approximate twenty long years; it is the complex tomb of an Afghan, Isa Khan Niyaz who was dignified in Sher Shah Suri's famous court of the Suri dynasty and also fought against the Mughals.

Further, the complex includes the major tomb of the famous Emperor Humayun, which shelters the graves of his companion, Hamida Begum, as well as the son of later Emperor Shah Jahan, named Dara Shikoh. The complex also comprises the grave of many other Mughals like Emperor Jahandar Shah, Farrukhsiyar, renowned Rafi Ul-Darjat, Rafi Ud-Daulat and famed Alamgir II. It symbolized a jump in Mughal architecture, and jointly with its gifted Charbagh garden, distinctive of Persian gardens, it became an example for succeeding Mughal architecture.

Later on, in Mughal history, the final Mughal monarch, Bahadur Shah Zafar took shelter along with the three princes in the Humayun’s Tomb, during the Indian revolt of 1857, and soon got arrested by famed Captain Hodson just before going to Rangoon. Well! The way Humayun’s tomb is build and decorated is just remarkable. It’s the finest monument of India, which is viewed by millions of people, every year. Despite being one of the oldest monument of India the beauty and charm of the tomb is still fresh and alive.

So, if you are making plans to visit India for your next holidays, don’t forget to mark your attendance in this magnum opus… wish you a best journey, ahead!
