Humayun’s Tomb inspired the design of the Taj Mahal. Empress Bega Begum commissioned this grand mausoleum in 1570 for her husband, Mughal Emperor Humayun. The complex surrounding the tomb has plenty to explore, from sprawling gardens to historic structures like the octagonal tomb of Isa Khan, which pre-dates Humayun’s. Visiting at sunset is a must. The light during golden hour makes for excellent photos.
