This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate.

It was once the residence of the royal family and affectionately called Qila-i-Mubarak, the blessed fort.

It was built for the Mughal Emperor Humayun's tomb and commissioned by Humayun's wife Hamida Banu Begum in 1562 CE. Its design was based on Persian architecture and it was the first structure in Delhi to use red sandstone. One of the highlights of our Delhi day tour.
