Safdarjung's Tomb Tours

Safdarjung's Tomb
The 18th-century Safdarjung’s Tomb, though not as well known as some of New Delhi’s bigger, older Mughal-era tombs, is worth a visit for its beautiful Mughal architecture and pleasant lack of crowds. It’s a peaceful place to escape traffic noise, and its location at the border of Central and South Delhi make it a convenient spot for a visit.
 
The Basics
As its name suggests, Safdarjung’s Tomb is the final resting place of the Viceroy of Awadh—popularly known as Safdarjung. The Mughal-style structure was built in 1754, making it the newest of India’s closed garden tombs, and much of its architectural inspiration was drawn from the better-known Humayun’s Tomb to the east. Like many Indian tombs of its era, it features a char bagh (four-quarter) garden as well as an intricate interior featuring carved floral designs in marble and red sandstone. 
 
Safdarjung’s Tomb is often visited independently or on a combined tour with the nearby Lodi Gardens. It also features on some full-day tours of Delhi.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Safdarjung’s Tomb is a must for fans of history and Mughal architecture.
  • Bring sun protection and plenty of water on hot days, as there’s not much shade (except inside the tomb itself).
  • Wear good shoes here. The gardens surrounding the tomb aren’t well maintained, and the area gets dusty or muddy, depending on the season.
 
How to Get There
Safdarjung’s Tomb is located where Sri Aurobindo Marg and Lodhi Road meet, making it easy to access by road from Central or South Delhi. The Jorbagh metro station is a 4-minute walk from the tomb’s eastern entrance.
 
When to Get There
Safdarjung’s Tomb is open from sunrise to sunset Tuesday through Sunday. It generally doesn’t get too crowded here, though to beat the heat—especially in May and June—opt for an early-morning visit. Best to avoid the tomb during the monsoon season, as the gardens and pathways get muddy.
 
Exploring Delhi’s Tombs
Delhi is full of fascinating tombs, from the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Humayun’s Tomb to smaller, Archaeological Survey of India–managed mausoleums of lesser-known nobility and rulers scattered throughout local neighborhoods and parks. Many city tours focus on these majestic tombs, allowing visitors to see the evolution of older constructions (such as those found in Lodi Gardens) to relatively young tombs, such as that of Safdarjung.
Address: Lodi Estate, New Delhi, ND DL, India
