A mini-trip to Humayun’s tomb

Today I woke up early (on a Sunday, nevertheless) and went to Humayun’s tomb to take some photos. It’s been a long time since I took out my camera (a Fuji X-E3), so this felt good!

Humayun’s tomb is one of the first big Mughal tomb projects, and as you can probably see from the photos, it’s a fore-runner to more famous ones like the Taj Mahal. The whole complex has a bunch of other ruins as well, and I particularly liked Isa Khan’s tomb — it’s a lot more colourful than typical Mughal buildings. Anyways, here are some of the photos I took.

Reminds you of a more famous something?
Lots of little windows like this everywhere, and beautiful shadows and light.
These are the corridors of Isa Khan’s tomb.
Parrots, sparrows, and squirrels, all after the same bounty.
Imagine this in its heydays. These were built to inspire.
