Humayun’s Tomb

This was built in the mid-16th century and brought Persian style to Delhi via Haji Begum who was the Persian born senior wife of the second Mughal emperor Humayun. The building is actually the inspiration for the Taj Mahal. Tombs are inside and out- even the emperor’s favorite barber earned a final resting place here.
