Anyway! So did not spend much time in college and took my Vasant Kunj Special. But I wasn’t coming home directly. I had been thinking of visiting Safdarjung’s Tomb for quite some time and today the plan finally materialised. Of course, I was alone just like I was a year ago when I went to see the Red Fort. The excitement was not as high as the previous time because now I’m a lot more used to doing stuff alone but I was definitely looking forward to seeing the place.
The Tomb was built by Nawab Shujauddaula for his father Mirza Mudim Abul Mansur Khan or Safdarjung. (Now that’s a long name!)
The number of couples inside the place was not even funny. I was feeling embarrassed in front of all the foreigners because of ALL those people who were at it. Looked like a wholesale market! For once I wished for some moral policing. Ugh!
Anyway, I kept myself busy in clicking pictures. It is built on the lines of the architecture of Humayun’s Tomb. And if not the inside, the outside has been maintained quite well. The ceilings were extremely pretty too. I spent about one hour there. Moved around at leisure (but the couples irritated me!!); it isn’t too big.
Part of a pillar. This is one of my favourites.
