Delhi s Humayuns Tomb

Plan Your Tour
By Shivanand Bhosle

It comes under the listing of UNESCO World Heritage Site – this seemingly silent Mosulem of Delhi. Touching the main road, you might have crossed it a number of times; but never visited it. It looks like a old building to the youngsters and for the aged its a long walk. Sheer waste of time for many this Architectural Marvel of it is still maintained by the Archaeological Department of India.

The Tomb was built by Bega Begum; Persian Queen of Humayun, who built this mosulem in the memory of her beloved husband. Built in the duration of 1562 – 1572 A.D.; it was the Persina Architect Mirak Mirza Ghiyuath. The Humayun's Tomb is built on the Muslim Ideology that the Heaven/Jannat is place which is in the middle of a beautiful garden with the water flowing from the centre. Garden built on the same ideology in the Tomb is called as Char Minar ( as the garden is divided into four parts). The first garden tomb made in India, Humayun's Tomb is divided into four parts with 36 squares by a grid of water channels paths.

If you are visiting the Humayun's Tomb for the first time, then enter through the long axial track. As you move along, you will find the glimpse of the interiors of the Tomb, through the gateways. Built in an Octagonal form from the interior, it is placed on a long platform. On entering, you will find numerous graves, of the workers of the Tomb – who upon their death were respectfully laid down here.

The next would be the Great Chamber which has four offsets, is double storied in height and has arcades on their facades. This is the place where you find the Grave of Humayun and his devoted Queen Bega Begum – the real architect of the Humayun's Tomb. The Central tomb where Humayun was laid to rest has a 4.2 mts high colossal double dome.

Built in red stone , surrounded by greenery and the designs of marble, this place does not attract a lot Indians. Maybe Indian do not think their own Heritage worth watching, but still there are a number of people from other Countries for whom Humayun's Tomb hold a a lot of attraction.

Still for those who are on a visit to India, do not forget to see the other famous Historical buildings of Delhi like Red Fort, Qutub Minar and the Jama Masjid.
