Humayun's tomb is a complex of buildings of Mughal architecture located in Nizamuddin east, New Delhi. The complex is a World Heritage Site and the first example of this type of Mughal architecture in India. The mausoleum was built from 1562-1572 AD in Delhi. It was constructed with the help of a Persian architect, Mirak Mirza Ghiyuath. The Humayun's Tomb clearly exhibits the influence of Persian art. Humayun’s Tomb was the first garden tomb made in India. The sarcophagus of Humayun is found in the central domed chamber, the head pointing south, and facing east according to Islamic practice.
