Safdarjang Tomb

The Safdarjung tomb is historically a striking piece in Delhi. Located at one of the most significant junctions of the city i.e. Aurobindo Marg and Lodhi Road- this building is considered as the last prominent example before Mughal dynasty perished completely. If you are a history buff and going for a Delhi tour package, this site should be in your bucket list. But even if the nuances of Mughal period don’t excite you, a trip to Safdarjung Tomb will give the breath of relief that one aspires for. Safdarjung was a powerful vizier (chief minister) during the declining period of Mughal dynasty. After his death, his son erected this tomb with the permission of then Mughal ruler. The red sandstone and white marble combination that went into making of this tomb is synonymous with any standard Mughal building. The lay-out of the garden and the placing of the tomb of Safdarjung will remind you of Taj Mahal. As this place is quite under-rated and less-hyped, it’s a favorite for many foreign tourists who seek for quiet tourist spots. Spending a silent evening in the complex of Safdarjung Tomb will have the most charming calming effect on anybody. The clean garden surrounding the place welcomes the tourists with soft grass. If you want to chat with your friends or simply lay flat on the ground and gaze at evening sky- the lawn of the tomb will supply the ambience for it. In your much anticipated Delhi Agra tour, it should be the cherry on the top.
