The tomb dates to Lodhi era and almost certainly belonged to a Lodhi noble who may not have played any significant role in shaping Delhi. The Tomb stands on a raised platform and the structure is crowned with a high dome.
However as per Archaeological department no information is available on Bijri Khan.

The Safdarjung Tomb is dedicated to Mirza Muqeem Abul-Mansur Khan, who was also known as Safdarjung. The tomb was built by his son in 1754 and is special because it was the last building to be constructed in the same fashion as Humayun’s Tomb.
The tomb has tanks and fountains dotting the central pathway. It has a gate on the east and is surrounded by pavilions on its other three sides. It is a double storied square structure built on a platform of a raised terrace.
“For those fortunate souls who constantly and directly see the beautiful form of Rama , crores of holy rivers are present at Dhanushkoti (the tip of Rama’s bow) itself, rivers like Ganga with its sources at the Lord’s feet and the Kaveri deriving its glory from shri Ranganatha; why should one wander from place to place (on tirtha yatra)?”
Dhanushkodi, a place 20 km away from the main town of Rameshwaram, is the place where you can see the Ram Setu. Dhanushkodi is the place where the wonders of nature and man become one. A place surrounded with mystery, ghost stories and myths.
The town is stark and empty – stripped of life and the barrenness. It was the 21st of December, 1964. 55 years ago, a disaster hit the little port town of Dhanushkodi swallowing the town and taking many lives. The Pamban Dhanushkodi Passenger train which left Pamban with 110 passengers and 5 members of the railway staff was hit by the high tidal waves and the whole train got submerged under water killing all 115 passengers. As a result, the little town which was once a tourist spot with several pilgrims and fishermen, was reduced to ruins. Skeletal remains of a church and a temple along with some crumbled walls of homes lie scattered on the sands. There is hardly any ruin in the town – just some broken and fragmented bricks.
When we fall in love with someone there’s a moment when we take a picture of that person, an emotional snapshot, that we carry with us forever. If we’re lucky, if we’re very, very lucky, the person we fall in love with will always resemble that snapshot.
Heard a lot about this outlet and its food from my foodie friends. So recently when I was in CP with family I decided to give it a try. I am a big fan of Delhi street food and like spicy meals. Compare to Delhi, Bombay ( yes, for me it is still Bombay ) street food is totally different. Less spicy with different flavour. It was an early evening so we just ordered some snacks.
1.Vada Pao – It was just enough warm to eat. Portion size was too small. Taste average. (3/5)
2.Pav bhaji – Good taste but less spicy compare to Delhi version. (4/5)
3.Dhokla Papdi Chat – Portion size was good. Enough for 2 people. Loved it. (5/5)
4. Special Chinese Bhel – Something different. (3.75/5)
5- Kufi – Good taste. Must have (4.5/5)
6. Fruit Cocktail – Fresh Juice. Good taste. (4.5/5)
Ambiance : 4/5
Service : 5/5 ( Really quick )
Value for money : 3.75/5
