Historical places in Delhi

Humayun Tomb


The panoramic view of Isa Khan Tomb in the premises of Humayun’s Tomb, Delhi. When I last visited the tomb, the Isa Khan Tomb was being restored, so this might look different now. 


The minister’s hall in the Humayun Tomb is another architecture marvel of Delhi.


Qutub Minar

Wondering if the plane can actually hit the Qutub or how the pilot might be just so used to of crossing  Qutub like this??


Looking up to the Qutub Minar, Delhi touching the sky. Well, this is a cliche in the photography usually done around the Qutub but aren’t cliches beautiful?


Safdarjung Tomb

A lesser-known historic marvel is Safdarjang Tomb situated in south-Delhi built on similar patterns of the Taj and Humayun Tomb yet smaller in perspective. This tomb marks the ending of Mughal empire in India and hence is important to Indian history.

Agrasen ki Baoli

In the historic era, water channels were of great significance which is easily visible from the architecture buildings all over in the capital. In fact, Delhi has as much as 30 much water channels – locally known as Baolis but the most famous out of the lot is the Agrasen ki Baoli. Located in central Delhi, near to Connaught place, the baoli is well connected from metro & road. 


Hauz Khas Fort

Hauz Khas fort is another one of the eminent historical places in Delhi. The Hauz Khas fort got its name from the current Hauz Khas area. The Hauz Khas Fort and the adjacent gorgeous lake in the complex is a perfect way to spend a peaceful afternoon.
