History of Humayun’s Tomb

Humayun was the third Mughal emperor and the son of Emperor Akbar. He came to power in 1556 and reigned for only 20 months before his death. His mother was Bega Begum, an Uzbek princess. He was known by his counselors as a young man, but he eventually took control of the empire after his father’s death. This monument is considered one of the significant examples of Mughal architecture from that period.
