The Barber's Tomb or Nai ka Maqbra is one of the tombs in the Humayun's Tomb complex. It is not known who is buried in this tomb, but there are the cenotaphs containing graves of a male and female here. It is a small but very beautiful building in red and grey sandstone. Some historians state that it was built for the emperor Humayun's favourite barber. The tomb stands on a podium which is 2.44 metres high and 24.3 square metres wide.
