Humayoon's Tomb, Delhi - 1858

Photograph of Humayun's tomb in Delhi from 'Murray Collection: Views in
Delhi, Cawnpore, Allahabad and Benares' taken by Dr. John Murray in 1858
after the Uprising of 1857. The tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun (r.
1530-56) was constructed c.1565 by his widow Haji Begum. The
architectural style incorporated Persian and Mughal styles which later
influenced the building of the Taj Mahal in Agra with similar features
including a central bayed arch, a raised dome, and the use of chatris or
pavilions. The tomb is located within a char bagh, a four-fold garden.
"Based on the char bagh types established in Iran and more fully
developed in Babur's own concept of the ideal garden, such formalized
and geometrically planned garden settings became standard for all the
imperial Mughal mausolea."
