Safdarjung Tomb

"The last flicker in the lamp of Mughal architecture"

Safdarjung's Tomb was built in memorial of Safdarjung the governor of the province of Awadh and Nawab Shuja-ud-daulah's father. Tomb was built in 1754. It is a beautiful garden tomb. Two graves are located in the tomb, one that of Safdarjung's and the other of his wife. Tomb is a sandstone and marble mausoleum. It was built towards the end of the Mughal Empire and was described as "the last flicker in the lamp of Mughal architecture." The monument has an ambiance of spaciousness and an imposing presence with its domed and arched red brown and white coloured structures. The Safdarjang's Tomb of Delhi is closely located to the Safdarjang Airport.

The central architecture of Safdarjang's Tomb at Delhi has four two-storied minarets and a bulbous dome built of pure white marble. There is also Mosque attached to the gate.

Besides the tomb, there are many different structures of which the notable are the ladies' quarters, a market place and a guest house that certainly points out that the area was once inhabited by quite a large population. This structure was one of the last monument to be constructed anywhere in Delhi and it is one of the popular historical monuments visited by tourists from all over the world. Its architecture and beauty makes it worth visiting.
