Tomb of Bijri Khan : Photo Essay

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.

Location : 969, Sri Venkateshwara Mandir Marg, Sector 2, Rama Krishna Puram, New Delhi, Delhi 110022

Safdarjung Tomb : Photo Essay

The structure is made of marble and and red sandstone quite pleasing in appearance.

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.

It stands in the middle of a large garden and is divided in a square shaped pattern–quite like a char-bagh

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.

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.
