Weekend Evening and nowhere to go?—Consider visiting Delhi’s Humayun Tomb.

You might have been to Humayun Tomb earlier. 

  • If went alone, try with a group of friends.
  • If went with friends, try going alone.
  • If tick marked both the above points, try visiting with your family.

Nevertheless, if you found things sound pretty dull.

  • Then, visit with a precise purpose.

I have been to the Humayun Tomb earlier 2 times before choosing to visit again.

What draws you to re-visit a place? Mainly, a purpose. That purpose could be architecture, Photography, interest in history, etc.

For instance, I re-visited the below bus stop:

My interest remained in Photography. So, I decided to visit Humayun Tomb in the evening.

But, if you also want to go someplace in the morning, you can consider visiting Safdarjung Tomb in the daytime and then Humayun Tomb in the later afternoon or evening.

Which is the Nearest Metro to Humayun Tomb?

The nearest metro to Humayun Tomb is Jawaharlal Nehru Metro Station, Violet line. You can walk from the metro to reach the Humayun Tomb.

Since I had visited the Humayun Tomb after a long time recently, so I thought that Jor Bagh Metro would be the nearest, but that metro station is closest to the Safdarjung Tomb.

Taking an Auto from outside Safdarjung Tomb to Hamayun Tomb will cost you Rs. 60-70.

If you’re only planning to visit Humayun Tomb, then the JLN metro station is where you have to keep an eye on.

The distance between JLN metro to Humayun Tomb is roughly 2.2km, and you can easily walk and reach there. Although, if you choose to take an Auto, it will cost you Rs. 40-50.

Ultimately, the fare of the Auto also relies upon your bargaining skills, the number of people accompanying you, and the time of the day. Hence, remain flexible.

What is Humayun Tomb Ticket Price?

The Humayun Tomb ticket price is Rs. 40 per person for Indians and Rs. 250 per person for foreigners.

Allow me to tell you about a Laughable Happening:

When I stood in the ticket line, the security guard mistook me for a foreigner and gently waved and directed me to stand in a separate line.

I spoke: Indian hu mein (I am an Indian)

Security Guard smiled shyly!

You will get an entry token which you have to keep safe until you leave the Tomb. Ultimately, that token resembles a metro token likewise. 

Notably, If you are wondering, are there any camera carrying fees?—No, you can take your cameras with you without additional cost.
