Humayun’s Tomb, Delhi

IMG_3881 (Large) IMG_3937 (Large)This UNESCO World Heritage Site serves as a memorial to the Mughal Emperor Humayun. The mausoleum was built from 1562-1572 AD with the help of Persian architects, Sayyed Muhammad ibn Mirak Ghiyathuddin and his father Mirak Ghiyathuddin, who were brought in from Herat (Afghanistan). The tomb clearly exhibits the influence of Persian art and was a landmark in establishing some of the essential norms for later Mughal mausoleums in India.IMG_3852 (Large) IMG_3843 (Large)It was definitely one of my favourite spots in the busy town of Delhi. It was good to enjoy the quietness of the place after the stress of the huge Indian city.IMG_3876 (Large)
