Why Hamida Begum and Emperor Akbar chose this precise location to build their respective husband’s and father’s Mausoleum? Humayun, the unlucky second Moghul Emperor who ascended the throne soon after his father’s Babur dismise, was buried here for a very meaningful reason! Besides, the Mausoleum is very important from the architectural point of view. And who was the reliable servant whom Akbar decided to bury, not far from his father, in a majestic Mausoleum? Can we say Humayun’s tomb is the only jewel of the complex? What about Isa Khan tomb? After a briefing to lead you to the Mughal Dynasty from the first rulers who ruled as the Delhi Sultanate, we’ll take our time to visit the most important monuments of the complex which is very well maintained by the Aga Khan Foundation. But now is time to get the answer to the first question: why Humayun was buried here? Be ready to immerse yourself into a glimpse of Real Life, one of the various realities of the hundreds of different environments Delhi hosts. We just need to cross the road and enter Nizamuddin Basti and we will be overwhelmed by all kind of feelings, be aware to be prepared to face crowded not immaculate streets, yummy aromas coming from the food stalls and open air butcher shops. Follow the crowd and reach the heart of one of the most revered Shrines of our city, open your heart to Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya.
My name is Elena. I was born and brought up in Venice, North Italy, but I have been living in India since 2010. My bond with India dates back to my very first trip in 1997, after which I have returned regularly once or twice a year. Here I have never enough to satisfy my endless curiosity. Although I studied Design and worked in this field in Milan for over 20 years, on moving to India I changed my direction in life, becoming a free lance tour leader. For 3 years I also guided bicycle tours in Delhi. Nowadays my walking tours aim at satisfying the curiosity of visitors who want to understand the mysteries of this unique city which is a Pandora’s Box. I love to wonder through the ancient sites scattered around Delhi, following up tips for new discoveries. So please contact me and I’ll be happy to share them and all my enthusiasm with you!

For the second part of this tour you need to be flexible and comfortable with a crowded, not very cleaned area, but I'm sure in the end you will love the experience! I'm always ready to adjust the program with different options though. Just contact me and I can customise it.
