Wednesday Wonders: Humayun’s Tomb, Delhi

Humayun’s Tomb is the perfect antidote to escape from the cacophony of Delhi’s car horns and tuk tuk drivers.

Within the immaculately kept grounds, the sound of birdsong punctuates the air and the surrounding gardens are the perfect place to relax and unwind in.  I spent a couple of hours just wandering around.

Despite its World Heritage status, it is surprisingly quiet – hardly any other tourists were there at the same time as me.  Perhaps this is due to its location away from Delhi’s major tourist attractions such as the Red Fort.  Humayun’s Tomb is close to Purana Qila and the Delhi Zoo.
