This tomb, built in 1570, is of particular cultural significance as it was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent. It inspired several major architectural innovations, culminating in the construction of the Taj Mahal.
Humayun’s Tomb, Delhi is the first of the grand dynastic mausoleums that were to become synonyms of Mughal architecture with the architectural style reaching its zenith 80 years later at the later Taj Mahal. Persian and Indian craftsmen worked together to build the garden-tomb, far grander than any tomb built before in the Islamic world.
Humayun’s garden-tomb is also called the ‘dormitory of the Mughals’ as in the cells are buried over 150 Mughal family members.

Fashion is part of the daily air and it changes all the time, with all the events.
You can even see the approaching of a revolution in clothes.
You can see and feel everything in clothes.

Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent.
We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence.
If we could fly out of that window hand in hand,
hover over this great city,
gently remove the roofs,
and peep in at the queer things which are going on,
the strange coincidences,
the wonderful chains of events,
working through generations,
and leading to the most outre results,
it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.
