Humayun’s Tomb, Delhi, India

I’m writing this from Delhi, where we’ve spent the last few days.  We’ve managed to fit in some sightseeing in between serious retail therapy, visiting the Bahai Lotus Temple and the Gandhi Smriti (site of Gandhi’s assassination in 1948).

My favourite place in Delhi so far, however, is the tomb of the Mughal emperor Humayun.  We visited yesterday evening and watched the colours of the red sandstone and white marble change as the sun set, whilst the sound of qawwali singing echoed from a nearby Sufi shrine.
