Photographer's Note

Tomb of Safdarjung, who was the prime minister of Delhi under Muhammad Shah. Built in 1753-1754, the tomb lies at the head of Lodi road. The memorial was built by Nawab Shuja-ud-Daulah who was the son of Mirza Muqim Abul Mansur Khan popularly known as Safdarjung (1739-54) who was the governor of the province of Awadh under Muhammad Shah (1719-48) and later became his prime minister. The tomb is roughly on the plans of Humayun's tomb, though much scaled down. It is set in the middle of an extensive garden.The mausoleum built with red sandstone and buff stone is faced with marble and stands squarely in the middle of a garden. There are two graves here, one of Safdarjung and the other presumably his wife's
The gardens are very popular with young lovers of Delhi as they can enjoy privacy till 6.30PM for entry ticket of Rs 5 (10 cents)
