Privileged to be assigned as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, this tomb was
believed to be designed by Haji Begum, Humayun's Persian widow in the mid 16th
century, shortly after his death in 1556. The tomb was an important predecessor
of Mughal mausoleums. The 'Garden Tomb' as it is popularly called, is set amidst
a geometrically planned garden with a number of water channels crisscrossing
it. Typically, a Persian garden that would later be seen in the Red Fort of
Delhi and Taj Mahal of Agra, its architectural form and especially its main
chamber bears familiarity with the tomb of the Mongol Ilkhanid ruler of Persia,
Oljeytu, at Sultaniyya, which in turn was influenced by Timurid architecture
of the tomb of Timur (Tamerlane) in Samarkand, the lineage of Babur.
The first Indian building to use the Persian double dome, Humayun's tomb is
harmonious in its proportions and has some impressions of Indian architecture
that are clearly visible in the small kiosks or chhatris on the roof. The
building has beautiful inlaid tile work and intricately carved stone screensThis
is surrounded by a garden of Mughal days & several Mughal dignitaries
had also been buried here.
This tower is 73 meter tall. According to a school of thought it was built by

India the transformed Prithvi Tower into victory tower naming Qutab Minar after
his name. He had incorporated in it beautiful Afghan architecture. Its first
storeys are built with red-sand stone whie next 2 are built in marble.It's fist
section was launched by Qutubuddin Aibak & the remaining section was completed
after his death by his son-in-law & successor Sultan Altanush in AD 1236.

is a small hamlet situated in south west
Rajasthan, bordering the great Thar desert. The terrain here is a unique mixture
of Aravalli hills bordered by sand dunes and agricultural lands. The run-off
from these hills has created picturesque ravines in these dunes and has carried
this sand into neighbouring countryside making this area perfect for riding.
The south west part of Rajasthan is still untouched by western influence and
offers a good insight into the traditional way of life. The rock formations
in the Aisrana Range need a special mention as they are unique and wonderful
to watch against the backdrop of the setting sun.
would be an ideal destination for those
seeking adventure in form of safaris and at the same time wishing to get an
insight into untouched rural Rajasthan. It is not just a ride from one place
to another but rather a complete insight into rural southwest Rajasthan.
This part of Rajasthan has remained cut off from the
tourist circuit and as a result retains its traditional charm. The small Shepard
villages that one passes through still retain their originality in terms of
housing structures, attires and social customs. There are no forced smiles
to welcome the foreign tourist. Riding becomes the means through which one
views the culture as well as the wildlife of this region.
Highest appreciation has been received for the terrain of this region. It is
a beautiful combination of semi-desert countryside, dunes & ravines bordering
small offshoots of Aravalli Ranges, sandy plains & agricultural lands where
underground water exists. There is no monotony of riding the same terrain everyday.
Also worth mentioning are the rock formations in the small hills that one rides
by. These rock formations are particularly picturesque to watch against the

very well. All horses are well trained and the tack used is English. Camel Ride
