Before the Taj Mahal

img_0317

I always thought that the Taj Mahal was a unique one time wonder of the world. But there were earlier tombs almost as majestic. Here I am in front of Humayun’s tomb. This was the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun in Delhi, India. Commissioned by Humayun’s first wife and chief consort, Empress Bega Begum, in 1569-70, it was designed by Persian architects Mirak Mirza Ghiyas and his son, Sayyid Muhammad.
