VIBRANTLY MODERN AND STEEPED IN TRADITION, DELHI IS A CITY LIVING ITS OWN HISTORY.

In this capital destroyed and rebuilt many times throughout its history, ancient monuments are a testament to Mughal majesty, and Victorian government buildings speak of another empire. Hardly a living museum, though, this modern and cosmopolitan city, is also a hub of arts, culture, and intellectual life.

Pre-dating the Taj Mahal by nearly a century, this towering mausoleum was the first garden-tomb in India, and is nearly as impressive as its more famous cousin. Commissioned by Mughal emperor Humayun’s son, the tomb was designed by a Persian architect, who drew heavily on his homeland’s architecture, inspiring a number of architectural styles and innovations that can be found in the Taj.

Join Delhi society in escaping from the city’s bustle and strolling between the trees, around the crumbling tombs with their ashlar stone minarets, arched entryways, colored tiles, and Quranic inscriptions.
