The Mughal Emperor Humayun’s Tomb was built in the 1565 A.D by his wife Bega Begum with intricate Persian designs on it. It is located next to the crossing of Mathura road and Lodhi Road. The graves of other Mughal emperors along with Humayun are there within the building.
The tomb is surrounded with beautiful garden allowing the visitors to have leisurely walk. To reach the main deck one has to go through the stairways. You will get to see many marble tombstones inside the building and a small museum at the doorway displaying some old photographs along with description and history of the tomb. Being located within the proximity of Nizamuddin Dargah, this place is mostly visited by the devotees visiting the Dargah.
