"The Exterior" Top 5 Page for this destination Humayun Tomb Tip by keeweechic

Humayun Tomb, Delhi: 67 reviews and 185 photos


The exterior of the building is red sandstone but black and white marble has been used to enhance and lift the colour and the plainness and create borders. The additional arches around the building allow a lot of natural light to enter. Along with the large Domes are Hindu chattris (domed pavilions).
