Traveller's PickTraveller's Pick - About Safdarjung Tomb

One of the last tombs that are enclosed by a Mughal inspired garden of approximately 300 sq meters, Safdarjung's Tomb is situated in the capital near Lodhi road. This mausoleum was built under the guidance of Mughal Emperor, Mohammed Shah in 1753- 54 in the memory of Safdarjung, the viceroy of Awadh.

In line with a prominent feature of other Mughal monuments, where nature and Mughal architectural designs consorts perfectly, Safdarjung's Tomb consists of four water canals that lead to four buildings within its premises.

Mughal style of architecture was always considered as a perfect representation of pomp and grandeur with a hint of subtleness. Perspicacious insight by the creators resulted in culmination of various elements in the contour of every building. Safdarjung's Tomb is no exception. Several smaller pavilions with significance of their own give them air of elusiveness and whiff of Mughal era. Some of the redolent names that are associated with Safdarjung's Tomb are; Jangli Mahal, (Palace in the woods) and Moti Mahal (Pearl Palace).

Safdarjung's Tomb is a must visit place for anyone who is in the capital for the purpose of unveiling centuries old legacy of Indian polity.

"Been outshined by myriad of monuments and places in Delhi, Safdarjung tomb still hasn't lost its sheen in terms of artistic value and the cultural significance which are implicitly embodied in every inch of this symbolic representation of Indian heritage."
