Safdarjung's Tomb, New Delhi

(280+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • One of the best monuments I have visited... It's gardens are nice... Mostly because less crowded and less people are there so it's pretty quiet too... One of the place you can go with your family and have picnic inside... Though the maintenance could be more and more better but all in all as it's been kept, it's also nice... Sometimes you can find any odd couple doing hanky panky... But still a nice place...
  • This is very quite, calm area. The garden area is maintained very well. You will just want to walk in the grass. As per heritage site, there are not so much exciting tomb it is. Its just a big structure with a tomb at the center. But with just 15Rs ticket, you can spend a good evening in this relaxing area.
  • On of the few left work of art from mughals. Visit it...on cool days. As in summers it's scorching hot 😭. Great place to get mesmerized by the beauty of art
  • One of the amazing Mughal architecture...you can also see peacocks if you go early in morning. A little hot for summers, a better hangout place in winters. It has huge gardens to sit around...
  • Well maintained, calm, quiet, green place. The tomb also is very picturesque. The ticket only costs ₹15 for Indians.
