Humayun’s Tomb, Delhi

With the belief in paradise strengthening and the will to assert power even after death rising, came the extravagant tombs of the Mughal Rulers. One such precinct was the Humayun’s Tomb built by his wife after Humayun’s death. The whole idea was to declare a strict geometry and assert man’s dominance over nature. Complete with its water channels and the bulbous domes, this sandstone structure is a heart warming treat.

Fatehpur Sikri

Built under the reign of the powerful Mughal Ruler, Akbar, Fatehpur is a fine example of being a planned city of the 16th century. Full of elements from the Hindu, Mughal and Persian era and style, Akbar allowed his artisans to paint a city with their talents. Made of red sandstone and built on a citadel, Fatehpur Sikri is a stellar outcome of splendid architecture.

Sanchi, Madhya Pradesh

Calm, serene and tranquil, Sanchi has got to be one of the most peaceful tourist spots. Personifying Buddha himself, Sanchi with its Stupas is spread on a vast piece of land.
