Humayun’s tomb (Hindi: हुमायूँ का मक़बरा, Urdu: ہمایون کا مقبره Humayun ka Maqbara) is a complex of buildings built as the Mughal Emperor Humayun’s tomb, commissioned by Humayun’s wife Hamida Begum in 1562 CE, and designed by Mirak Mirza Ghiyath, a Persian architect. It was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent, and is located in Nizamuddin East, Delhi, India, close to the Dina-panah citadel also known as Purana Qila, that Humayun founded in 1533.
The complex encompasses the main tomb of the Emperor Humayun, which houses the graves of his wife, Hamida Begum, and alsoDara Shikoh, son of the later Emperor Shah Jahan, as well as numerous other subsequent Mughals, including Emperor Jahandar Shah,Farrukhsiyar, Rafi Ul-Darjat, Rafi Ud-Daulat and Alamgir II.4 The complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Magical history, beautifully presented. My Grandfather comes from this region (Punjab), and I was born on the exact day/date 400 years to the day Humayan died.

    I am still planning towards visiting this place and walking this land.
