Safdarjung's Tomb, New Delhi
(4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Constructed for the Muhammad Shah's viceroy of Oudh, Safdarjung's Tomb remains the last example of Delhi's Mughal architecture and a treat for history buffs. A large palm tree garden inhabited by peacocks encloses the estate, which stands divided into squares in a Persian-style pattern. Fountains and tanks decorate the central pathway, as a vast marble dome directs all eyes to the two-story tomb in the center. Architecturally, the structure lacks harmonious proportion a bit, particularly when you look at it vertically--but it still makes for some remarkable photographs.

  • The score is based more on the cost per person to get in. I know 200 rupees is not a lot but it is considering how similar but smaller temples and tombs are free around the city. The building itself i...  more »

  • The refurbishment works continue. Every visit seems to be an improvement on the last. My first visit was more than 6 years ago.

  • This place is very nice and peaceful,but you have to pay rupee 20 as entry fee. the tomb and the surroundings have been recently renovated. Safdarjung Tomb is well maintained as compared to many other monuments, so its A Good place to go and relax and spend some with yourself or with friends and family. It's also a good photography location. must visit.
  • Anybody interested in history, especially the Indian history involving the Sultans, would love this place. It is now well maintained by the Archeological Survey of India. Entrance to the upper floor(s) isn't permissible, but the spot comprises enough of corridors and spaces for spending quality time at the fort admiring the aesthetics of art and sculptures.
  • Nice location to spend time with you friends and family.... 😑It would have been more beautiful if the water fountains were working and if people had not left their marks on the walls...
  • Located towards the end of the Lodhi Road, this beautiful tomb is one the lesser known places of the city. The serene surroundings and intricate architecture make for a pleasing visit of this garden tomb from the Mughal era. Entry tickets cost 30 bucks per person and entry to the monument is permitted till 5 PM. The place doesn't attract a huge crowd as most people still do not know about this place. Parking here is easily available at all times.
  • This is the last flower of Mughal architecture in Delhi. A wonderful oasis of calm and tranquillity amidst the rush and bustle of the capital. At weekends there are lots of Indian couples, hiding in nooks and crannies, getting to know each other more. The tiny cafe in the wall is a good place to get a cup of tea and an omelette. I really love this place. It has more character somehow than Humayun's Tomb.
