Humayun’s Tomb, Delhi is the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun in Delhi, India. This tomb that was built in 1570, is of particular cultural significance as it was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent.
One of the most magnificent tombs built in Delhi during the Mughal rule, the Humayun’s Tomb is an excellent example of Persian architecture. Located near the crossing of Mathura road and Lodhi road, this magnificent garden tomb is the first substantial example of Mughal architecture in India.
Constructed for the Mughal emperor in the mid-16th century by Haji Begum, Humayun’s Persian-born wife, the tomb marries elements from both Persian and Mughal culture.
