Tomb of Humayun

Delhi, India.

Humayun (1508-1556) is the second Mughal emperor, the son of Babur and the father of Akbar. His tomb represents an early, Persian-influenced stage of Mughal architecture. Humayun's tomb, like those of his successors, is set in a large charbagh (garden) divided into quarters, which represents the Islamic Paradise.
