Owner description: This tomb, built in 1570, is of particular cultural significance as it was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent. It inspired several major architectural innovations, culminating in the construction of the Taj Mahal and many other Mughal architecture and garden complexes in India.

“A don't miss in Delhi”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Go early to appreciate this brilliant site - a great comparison to the Taj Mahal - before all the crowds arrive. In our opinion probably the best tourist site in Delhi

“Lovely place to wander around”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

The gardens and buildings were nice. It was very quiet there at about 9am so we almost had the place to ourselves. There are public toilets for 5r just outside the ticket entrance.

“Very Impressive”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

This place was a surprise as it's got lovely surroundings and brilliant architecture. We walked around the whole place and spent a lot more time there than anticipated as it's such a lovely place to walk around and admire the buildings within.

“Beautiful Monument with Tranquil Gardens”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Definitely one of the best historic attractions in Delhi to visit. The building is beautiful and well preserved, and is surrounded by landscaped gardens, which are lovely & very peaceful to wander round. Huge efforts have gone into restoring and maintaining it and there is a lot of information about this on display there. Wasn't too busy either, compared to other sites. A must if visiting Delhi.
