is a room in Humayun’s Tomb also known as “Baby Taj.” Humayun’s Tomb was commissioned by the wife of Mughal Emperor Humayun to honor him in 1565 and finished in 1572 AD at a cost of 1.5 million rupees. In many ways, Humayun’s Tomb is a red sandstone version of the Taj Mahal.
I was constantly amazed at the quality of the craftsmanship and architecture skills applied during a primitive time in our world’s history. This photo does not do Humayun’s Tomb justice. The structure is staggeringly tall and ornate. There is a lot of illogic in India, but one look at the amazing construction feats of their past gives rise to some hope for the burgeoning country’s future.
