Discover India | Photojournals: Humayun’s Tomb Complex (UNESCO World Heritage Site Book 1)

by David Riley

About Humayun’s Tomb

Humayun’s Tomb, also known as â??Maqbara e Humayun’ is the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun, who ruled India from 1530-1540 and then from 1555-1556. He was the son of the founder of Mughal Emperor, Babur. The tomb was commissioned by Humayun’s first wife Bega Begum, and designed by Persian architect Mirak Mirza Ghiyas.

It was the first garden tomb complex built in India, which led to a series of other tomb complexes on similar lines; including the world-famous Taj Mahal. The tomb complex departs from the fairly modest tomb style of his father Babur in Afghanistan, and takes a great leap forward towards creating a model for numerous subsequent Mughal buildings and complexes.

The site of the Humayun’s Tomb complex was chosen near the Dargah of the celebrated Sufi saint, Nizamuddin Auliya, who was revered by the rulers of Delhi. The site also lied on the banks of the Yamuna River, which has since receded to a much farther zone.

The Humayun’s Tomb complex was instated into the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites in 1993, and has since undergone a dramatic restoration movement. It has been the part of one of the biggest monument revival movements in India, with the most dramatic stage being the replacement of the 6m tall finial on the top of the dome, after it was knocked down by a heavy storm in 2014. Today the complex is one of the most well maintained monument complexes in India, and witnesses an average footfall of at least 6000 people on any given day.

About the series

Out of the 1073 UNESCO World Heritage Sites (as of November 2017), Italy has the maximum number with 53. India comes at a respectable 6th position with an incredible 36 sites spread through the country.

This series takes an attempt to capture each of these 36 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in pictures and words, telling all that you’d need to know about the site: before, during as well as after visiting the place. This is your perfect guide to know about the concerned site, as well as enjoy a preview/souvenir with beautiful photographs of the sites. So, enjoy the book and take it with you as you journey through the country, exploring the vast array of UNESCO World Heritage Sites that India has to offer.
