Humayun Tomb

Just minutes before the sun began to set, I reached the Humayun Tomb with a friend. The Humayun Tomb is located near the Hazrat Nizamuddin station and just opposite to the Nizamuddin Auliya in South Delhi.

The wall surrounding the many tombs is in ruins but fortunately the main tombs themselves are not in too bad a condition.

If you compare the structure from the previous post about Lodi Gardens, you will be see that the tombs are very similar.

The golden light of the setting sun made the experience of being in the Humayun Tomb surreal.
A pleasant walk of another 5 minutes took us to the main tomb through the arches, typical of Mughal architecture.I indulged in a little reflection photography.

Payed respects at the grave of Humayun.
And took a final shot of the Tomb before leaving.

and said goodbye to the place as the sun set...

I'm so glad you posted this! My husband and I are going to be there in April. I've started following your blog to get a glimpse of what we're going to be doing and seeing when we get there... It's so fantastic to be able to see a city we're visiting as tourists, through the eyes of someone for whom it's home. :)

Nice work. Especially like the last picture with the two almost symmetrical trees framing the setting sun.
