Medieval monument

A hawk flying next to the Mughal era monument, Humayun Tomb, located in Delhi, with some tourists visible nearby. The tomb was built as the final resting place of the Mughal emperor, who died in a fall from a staircase. Humayun Tomb is a magnificent red sandstone structure, located in the heart of Delhi. It is the tomb of the second great Mughal emperor, Humayun and was commissioned by his wife, Hamida Banu Begum in 1562 AD. It is a garden tomb, with the central structure of the tomb located in the middle of large gardens. The tomb is located very close to the Purana Qila, the fort used by the Mughals as their citadel. The tomb has gone through large scale renovation in collaboration with the Aga Khan trust and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage monument. The tomb, in addition to housing the tomb of the emperor, also houses the graves of his wife Hamida Begum and many others as well (including many later not so famous emperors of the Mughal dynasty) and the famous Dara Shikoh.
