"Nice place. But being open to the sky, it's good to visit this place in the very morning or in the after rain evening. Beautiful green park outside main premise. Toilets are to be found on the left side of the entry. Entry ticket is for Rs.20/-. "

"Safdarjung was the Vizer of the Mughal Empire. His Tomb though planned like Humayun's, due to a lack of resources from the dying Mughal Empire, is a poor cousin. The lines are not as graceful, the sandstone not as grand and the ornamentation not as striking. That said, the Tomb still has its place in the firmament of Mughal Architecture - it is the last gasp of this art form that exploded with Humayun's Tomb. The tomb and grounds are wheelchair friendly with appropriate access right from the entrance. "

"This is a very beautiful tomb surround with a lovely garden around it...nice place for photography(pre-wedding shoot etc). You can also find many couples spending some quality time over there. Tomb is near to 'Jor Bhag' metro station(walking distance)."
