Photographer's Note

Humayun's tomb is the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. The tombís construction was supervised by Humayun's first wife Bega Begum and designed by Mirak Mirza Ghiyath, a Persian architect. This garden-tomb was the first structure to use red sandstone at such a scale and is set in a geometrically arranged garden cris-crossed by numerous water channels.

The architectural form of the building is Persian.

The building is also noteworthy for its inlaid tile work, carving embodying both Indian and Persian decorative elements, and its carved stone screens.
