Safdarjung Tomb Delhi (India)
Safdarjung's Tomb is the last enclosed garden tomb in Delhi in the tradition of Humayun's Tomb, though it is far less grand in scale. It was built in 1753- 54 as a mausoleum of Safdarjung, and the viceroy of Awadh under the Mughal Emperor, Mohammed Shah.
There are many popular monuments in India which are a true symbol of its rich heritage and culture. The Tomb of Safdarjung is one such popular tourist attraction, which has an architecture similar to that of Humayun’s Tomb in Delhi. Well. It’s not just the way both these historical tombs are constructed,but both these tombs belong to eminent Mughal leaders.
In summers, visiting this mausoleum during evenings is much easier and preferable, because a gentle breeze during the dusk is so much better than facing the scorching sun. The most popular timing for visiting this tourist location in this season is during evenings, around 4 to 5 p.m.

Interesting facts about Safdarjung Tomb
At the very first look, the entire structure reminds you of the central dome of the Taj Mahal, which showcases the style used in the Mughal architecture. A major difference between these two is that the Tomb of Safdarjung is made from sandstone and marble, whereas the Taj Mahal is made from ivory-white marble.
This tomb is one of the popular establishments made during the Mughal Empire. Even though the Humayun’s Tomb in Delhi is quite popular and often associated with this dynasty, and the same cannot be said for the Tomb of Safdarjung when it comes to popularity.
Again, due to many different reasons, this monument receives very little renovation and maintenance as compared to other popular tourist hotspots in Delhi.
The mausoleum also has four fountains surrounding its structure, and a madrasa, which is a popular component of the Islamic architecture.
Also, many of us are still not aware of the news that this mausoleum witnessed the shooting of a popular Hollywood film “Jobs” released in the year 2013.
