Humayun's Tomb

This is the main entrance to Humayun's Tomb.  This itself is a marvel.  The first thing which come before you would be the shallow canal which is flowing slowly. This canal seems to be passing through the tomb complex.  The typical mughal garden is well kept.  The canal is ending into the fountain.  Going further, you can enter into the Tomb which is a predecessor of Taj Mahal.

It is really stunning to watch the tomb with the clear streams crossing over.  During the Partition of India, in August 1947 the Humayun's Tomb became major refugee camp for Muslims migrating to the newly founded Pakistan.
