This tomb, built in 1570, is of particular cultural significance as it was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent. It inspired several major architectural innovations, culminating in the construction of the Taj Mahal and many other Mughal architecture and garden complexes in India.

Absolutely Amazing!
Dec 2021
A clean, green and serene place in the middle of the city. Truly grand at scale that can't be imagined from its photos/videos. Easy to reach from JLN metro station (the nearest), there are absolutely no prearrangements required. Can scan and pay for tickets at the entry (Rs 70 for Indians). Carry essential food/water as there is no kiosk/eateries inside the complex. Washroom facility is available. Guards double down as guides and happy to share what they know about history. Maps/artefacts/stories have been maintained to make it historically interesting. The best part is access to first floor of the main tomb (huge open area with great visibility, ideal for winters). Rich artistic roof work and intricate wall angles make it an architectural marvel. People not comfortable with steep stairs and long walks may want to avoid.

Ideal for dates, families, shoots, and spending quiet quality time. Overall, a fulfilling 2 hour place :)

Our favorite sight in Delhi!
Oct 2021 • Family
What a great place to visit - as many others have said, it is an oasis of calm and beauty. The architecture is fantastic and surrounding buildings and tombs are equally lovely. While everyone is struggling for the perfect picture from the entrance side, be patient and walk all the way around the building from the same distance - you’ll find fantastic views with fewer/no people in your shots! Great history to boot - read up a bit first to truly appreciate just how special this place is.

A place for History lovers
Nov 2021
Beautiful Memorial place to visit. Especially if you are fond of understanding the history & love watching beautiful view.

It requires around 1 hour to see the complete site. Do plan your visit with other monuments, as all can be covered together.

Nice but the prices for Foreigners are to high!
Nov 2021 • Couples
The place is really fantastic!

It’s a huge area with great parks and a lot of animals.

Why I only give 3 Stars? Because the price for tourists are 12x times higher then for locals and you are not allowed to bring a small attached microphone on your camera!

Sorry guys that makes no sense!

And advertising with a discount 50 Rupies of by Card Payment but not providing the Option is a real no go!

Nice place
Oct 2021
Very nice place (cause it is quiet and clean;). First of all wanna say that this area contains several ancient buildings: Humayun's tomb, Barber's tomb, Nila Gumbad, Isa Khan Mausoleum,Afsarwala mausoleum and Bu Halima's mausoleum. and make no sense to separate it or rate it separately. It's like big park with walls and buildings. good place to rest on sunday morning.
special entry fee for foreigners: 600rupees.

On the last day, as we had time to spare, we visited Humayun's tomb, which is undergoing restoration. It is slowly rejuvenating

Don’t miss this if you’re in Delhi
Oct 2020
This is a wonderful building, less visited than some of the other highlights of Delhi. It’s a great example of Mughal architecture which anyone interested in such buildings should definitely make the effort to see.

We visited the Mughal Emperor Humayun's garden tomb, which is a UNESCO World Heritage, being built in 1570. It's the first garden tomb, that has been built in India.
We were impressed by this dazzling octogonal mausoleum in the early Mughal architectural style. We saw that the mausoleum was surmounted by a double dome 42.5 meter high, clad in marble with colonnaded kiosks

Altogether, I highly recommend to visit wonderful Humayun's garden tomb, whose early Mughal architecture will later lead to the construction of the Taj Mahal!!!
