On my mission to explore my hometown, New Delhi, India, we planned an impromptu visit to Humayun’s tomb. Inspired by Persian architecture, Humayun’s wife – Haji Begum – inaugurated the construction of the tomb post the death of Mughal emperor Humayun.

Located in Nizamuddin, Delhi, the tomb built with red sandstone stands in the center of a square garden comprising of various water channels. Apart from the graves of Humayun Kabri & Haji Begum,  the tomb also comprehends graves of various Mughal emperors. Declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1993, the tomb has undergone major restoration work by Aga Khan foundation.
