Humayun Tomb (Maqbara e Humayun Turkish – Humayun’s Tomb) is the tomb of the Mughal ruler Humayun, built-in Delhi, India. It was constructed by Humayun’s first consort “Bega Begum” in 1558 and was designed by the Persian architect Mirza Mirza Ghiyas and his son Sayyid Muhammad. This is the first garden tomb of the Indian subcontinent. It is situated in Nizamuddin East of Delhi near Purana Qila, established by the Mughal ruler Humayun in 1533. And this is the first tomb to be used red stones while making it. This tomb was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993 and since then this tomb is famous all over the world.

Mughals have built numerous gems of architecture to explore all of them, plan the Delhi golden triangle tour which includes Jaipur, Agra, and Delhi’s amazing monuments. Most of Agra’s and Delhi’s monuments are constructed by Mughals. The Taj Mahal is one of them and it is also considered one of the Seven Wonders Of The World. To make a memorable visit to the taj Mahal keep in mind the Taj Mahal Agra Visiting Hours.

There are 144 other monuments that are also built inside this tomb of Humayun, as soon as we enter the southern gate of the tomb, we see small monuments built along the way. Famous buildings and heritage of the Mughal era include Humayun’s Tomb as well as the Charbagh Garden, which looks like a Persian Garden because such a garden was never seen in India. Humayun’s tomb was built on the banks of Yamuna due to its proximity to the Nizamuddin Dargah, and near the same tomb, there is also the tomb of Delhi’s Sufi saint Nizamuddin Auliya.

The main building took eight years to build, but its full splendor stems from the Charbagh-style Mughal gardens spread over 30 acres that surround it. These gardens were the first examples of their kind not only in India but in South Asia. These are examples of high-class geometry. The Garden of Paradise is built inside the Chahar Wall. This park is divided into four parts by walkways (Khiaban) and two dividing central water channels. They represent the four rivers flowing in the Garden of Paradise of Islam. The four gardens thus formed are again divided into four smaller parts each by paths made of stone. In this way, a total of 32 parts are formed.
