India | Experience the Interplay of Art Treasures in New Delhi

🌈Mausoleum of Humayun is located in the southeast corner of New Delhi, India 🇮🇳. It is the tomb of Humayun, the second emperor of the Mughal dynasty, and also represents a typical combination of Islamic and Indian architectural styles. 🌄We arrived early at the Mausoleum of Humayun and started our day's itinerary. The entrance fee here still doubles for foreigners [Cash 💵 300 rupees - Card 💳 250 rupees]. ✔Enter from the main entrance, first is a large green lawn, the clean and quiet environment forms an unimaginable contrast with the crowded and noisy outside attractions. ✔The place we first went to is a cemetery on the right side of the main road➡. Inside the wall, there is a majestic palace-style tomb in the center, which feels very Islamic. We wandered around and stayed there for almost 30 minutes. ✔After leaving the cemetery, we walked along the main road towards the location of the Humayun's Tomb. Gradually, you will discover a palace-style tomb 🕌 with a main color of red sandstone, surrounded by green grass and fountain ⛲ water. Although it is known to be a tomb, it still carries a strong sense of beauty under such majesty. There are many trees around the lawn, and there are many benches under the trees 🌲 where locals sit in the shade, chatting and enjoying this unique tranquility. ✔The second floor of Humayun's Tomb is a large platform, where you can have a panoramic view of the entire garden and also have a close-up view of the tomb. The large dome on this tomb is a clear indication of the Muslim architectural style, but upon closer observation, you can see many Indian ethnic architectural styles. So the question is ➰[Is Humayun's Tomb really a prototype of the Taj Mahal❓]This has always been a topic of discussion, and of course, I don't know for sure. The most typical feature of Humayun's Tomb is the two lotus flowers on the upper part of the entrance gate, one in full bloom, which is a symbol of Hinduism, and the other closed, which is a symbol of Islam. ✔When we finished visiting Humayongling, there were already a large number of tourists queuing at the entrance. Fortunately, we came early to avoid such a situation, which was quite fortunate.
