Humayun's Tomb

Originally constructed in AD 1572 and beautifully restored in 2013, this UNESCO World Heritage site stands as a testament to the life and legacy of the second emperor of the Mughal dynasty, Humayun. The tomb is the first of the "grand dynastic mausoleums" that were to become synonyms of Mughal architecture, which reached its peak 80 years later at the Taj Mahal. Humayun's Tomb is in a complex of 27 hectares. that includes other 16th century Mughal garden-tombs such as Nila Gumbad, Isa Khan, Bu Halima, Afsarwala, Barber's Tomb and the Arab Serai. Persian and Indian craftsmen worked together to build this garden-tomb, at the time far grander than any tomb built before in the Islamic world. The mausoleum stands on a high, wide terraced platform. It is topped by a 42.5 m high double dome clad in marble. The tomb is also known as the ‘dormitory of the Mughals,' as there are over 150 Mughal family members buried there
