HUMAYUN’s TOMB: early Mughal

Worth the trip up, and no, I didn't take a photograph of the 2nd Mughal ruler's 2nd wife's tomb, or even of his tomb, though I realized this fact: there are plenty of Muslim tombs, but of course, no Hindu ones. But I digress. This forerunner of the Taj Mahal is built of red sandstone as well as white marble.


TWENTY-EIGHT. Who needs StairMaster now?


A couple of the 30 acres making up the complex


For Peggy S. (and all your students @ MSB!): the tomb of the emperor's favorite Barber. Yes.
