Safdarjung's Tomb, New Delhi

4.2
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.

  • It was a space without foreign tourists haven't found, but very busy holiday and somehow relaxing atmosphere. Slow staff than most of the major tourist destinations, so may be a surprising spot. Don't let this fool indeed modest, Humayun, were... Impressed, especially delicate decoration of the ceiling and let out a sigh that makes you beautiful heart

  • The Safdarjung Tomb complex is a great place to learn something more about the long history of Delhi. The complex has a beautiful park with a lot of old ruins. Most importantly, it is such a peaceful and calm place that one almost forgets that they are in Delhi. It is a lovely place to come picnicking and /or escape the hustle and bustle of Delhi.The Safdarjung Tomb complex, just like the other similar complexes in Delhi, has plenty of old tombs around - some of them almost in their original state and others are just an indistinguishable pile of stones. The Safdarjung Tomb complex is definitely one of the places to visit if you are in Delhi. Bear in mind that it gets quite busy on the weekend.
  • Safdarjung tomb is located in the Delhi near the safdarjung airport and it is a must visit place. The peace you feel there is just amazing. We can kind of day this as a second Take Mahal . The view we soon as soon as we enter the tomb is just amazing. Just outside the tomb, there is a refreshment shop as well. You can have your snacks there. Also, the charges are very nominal , just 10 rupees for parking and 15 rupees per person for entry. You can hear the birds chirping there and you can easily spot a peacock as well.
  • Beautiful place.Wonderful garden inside the premises.But some monuments are not in good condition and some guidelines stone script must be there so that everybody can learn the importance of this tomb .Center of attraction is Safdarjung tomb which is in good condition. And one more thing I have noticed that separate toilets for ladies and drinking water are not available. Overall this place is good for visit.
  • Well maintained i.e ground and tomb part. Fountains are non functional and are dry, they charge 15 rupees as admission fees and the history related to this place is worth reading and photography is must. If you want to spend time away from the crowd and looking for peace, then do go here. Sit in lush greenery and chill.
