An architectural forerunner of the Taj Mahal, Humayun's Tomb was built in the mid 16th century by Mughal Emperor Humayun's widow, Haji Begam, who was also buried there. Its arched entrances and bulbous dome are surrounded by lovely formal gardens, making it one of the most beautiful Mughal buildings in the city. Plan to spend at least an hour at this UNESCO World Heritage site.
I've been to this place many times, but don't remember the story behind this place, reason being I've not seen any guide (touts) authourised or unauthourised explaining to tourists. Normally in places like this have at least 2 or 3 guides who explain & other passerbys can pick up some story narrated by these so called guides. All said & done it is no doubt one of the beautiful & good tourist sight seeing place. it is quite similar to Akbhar's sikandara. Best to time to enter during peak summer time would be either early in the morning or in the evening around 4 or 4 pm. Thanks & Best wishes.
I was at the Humayun's Tomb last weekend on my holidayindia. What I read only in History books is something that I saw with my own eyes. It takes you back to the Mughalera. India has so much to offer.
A must visit monument.
After Babur the entire Mogul Kingdom is buried here except Akbur and Shah Jehan and Last emperor It is built before Taj which is a copy of this monument. Best is Akber's monument and that is best maintained and clean.It is a must see place and worth a visit.
This UNESCO World Heritage monument on the eastern side of the city, is a perfect place to spend a few hours in the afternoon. The park is well maintained with funds from the Aga Khan Foundation, with lots of old trees providing shading from the sun. The tomb structure itself is very beautiful, and the mausoleum for the barber is also interesting.
Go before sunset and the warm afternoon light gives the whole place a wonderful glow.
I was surprised to see that this place appeared to be the first draft of the Taj Mahal. Everything from the layout of the gardens to the architecture itself seemed to lend itself to Shah Jahan's masterpiece. Plus, it is MUCH more accessible from Delhi, and a much nicer acclimatization to India for first-time visitors...Agra can be a little tough...
Taj Mahal is still a grander dame; however, Humayun's Tomb and the grounds around it are absolutely worth a visit.

WELL... its tough to bear the traffic.Apart from this ...Worth seeing!!!
Humayun's Tomb is a wonderful park with astonishing monuments. Even though, as with most places in India, foreigners have to pay a lot (250 rupees) to enter, it is worth it if you bring some time and just stroll around and relax for a while. In the middle of Delhi, you can hardly hear any noise from the mad traffic, and really find peace here. It is lovely! For history buffs a must. Enjoy!
