Further we will explore the tomb Hamida Banu Begham built for her husband Humayun in 1562 AD. Designed by Mirak Mirza Ghiyath,a Persian architect. It was the first tomb with gardens in it on the Indian Subcontinent. Some of the interesting features of the massive tomb are the bath chamber, the sand stone mausoleum and a pavilion. Humayun’s Tomb is now a UNESCO World Heritage.
The tour continues with visit to Red Fort also known as the Lal Qila or “Qila-i-Mubarak”. It was built by Mughal emperor Shahjahan between 1638 and 1648 for the royal family residence. There were many more developments in it till the end of Aurangzeb’s reign and marked the zenith of mughal ingenuity. In 1857 it was lost to the British Empire.
