different locations before being transported to Humayun’s tomb.
2. Although the internal decorations of
the tomb have not survived up to today, in 1611 an English merchant, William
Finch visited the mausoleum. Thanks to his description of the tomb’s interior
we know that it was decorated with rich carpets, and a shamiana, a small tent
above the cenotaph. The cenotaph was decorated with copies of Qoran, Humayun’s
sword, turban and shoes.
3. Humayun’s tomb’s
architecture was the model for Taj Mahal.
4. The architecture of
the mausoleum is a mixture of Persian and Indian traditions.
5. There are around 150
graves in Humayun’s tomb and the surrounding garden.
6. To the south-east of
Humayun's Tomb there is a fine square tomb, known as the Barber's Tomb. This tomb is dated to 1590-91 and, most
probably, belonged to the barber of one of the representatives of Mughal dynasty.
