Sightseeing Delhi: Humayun’s Tomb with sunset

This video takes you to Humayun’s Tomb in New Delhi, India. The video of this famous sightseeing place in New Delhi was filmed ten years ago in January, which is why the sunset looks beautiful and you will see no pollution.

In this video you will get to see Humayun’s Tomb 1565-72 a.d. and Bu Halima Enclosure from 16th century. It is said that “Hamida Banu Begum, Humayun’s grieving widow, built Emperor Humayun’s mausoleum. Precursor to the Taj Mahal, it stands on a platform of 12000m2 and reaches a height of 47m2. The earliest example of Persian influence in Indian architecture, the tomb has within it over 100 graves, earning it the name ‘Dormitory of the Mughals. Built of rubble masonry, the structure is the first to use red sandstone and white marble in such great quantities. The small canopies of the terrace were originally covered in glazed blue tiles.”
