Safdarjung's Tomb, New Delhi

4.0
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.

  • Good Place to Visit and Spend Some Quality time in Peace... Though YOU can See many Couples around.. May Be Some sharing private Life publicly.. So Can Say No Place For Family Trip.. As Couples and frnds Group can have Fun Any time... Charges Are Rs 15 for Indian citizen. PARKING Rs 10 Extra For Bike, Rs 20For Car..
  • 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...
  • Good place to visit if the weather is fine. Less crowded. Awesome gardens. Loved the greenery. Good place to spend time with friends and family.
  • Peaceful surroundings with so much of greenery. Less crowded monument than others. Visit the Tomb to click some awesome pics and finish your next book.
  • 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.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
