View details

India has a rich history of dedicating beautiful and elaborate tours to important figures in history. Tour a selection of Delhi’s finest tombs, as well as other monuments dedicated to significant people in the city’s history. Begin at Humayun’s Tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built in 1570 on 21 hectares (52 acres) of land and perfectly illustrating the Mughal architectural influence in India. The first garden tomb to be built in India, the mausoleum is the final resting place of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. Its structure was to inspire many key architectural advances, culminating in the construction of the famed Taj Mahal nearly a century later. Commissioned by the emperor’s chief wife, Bega Begum, the tomb is located close to the Old Fort and is the first significant structure known to be built using mostly red sandstone. Legend has it that the Emperor’s wife was so distraught after his death that she dedicated her life to ensuring his legacy by building the most incredible mausoleum imaginable, where she would ultimately be laid to rest alongside him.

Continue your tour at the Qutb Minar, which was constructed in 1193 by Qutb-ud-din Aibak, the principal ruler of the Sultanate in Delhi, and today is conserved as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The masjid, or mosque, is considered to be one of the oldest buildings to survive in contemporary India. The architecture resembles the Iranian styling, but is thought to have been modelled on Afghanistan’s Minaret of Jam.

Your next stop is the Tomb of Lodhi, which was built in 1518 and lies in the elegant Lodhi Gardens. The monument had a distinctive octagonal design and lies a fortified complex, making it the earliest known enclosed garden tomb in the subcontinent. End your day at the sandstone and marble mausoleum of Sardarjung, known as the last monumental garden tomb of the Mughals. Its elegant lines mimic the grace of the famed Humayun’s Tomb. Inscribed with Arabic calligraphy, the entrance of this colossal mausoleum boldly states: “When the hero of plain bravery departs from the transitory, may he become a resident of god’s paradise.”
