Humayun's tomb is the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun, eldest son babar (first emperor of mughal empire in India). The tomb was commissioned by his wife Hamida Banu Begum in 1562, and designed by Mirak Mirza Ghiyath, a Persian architect. It was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent, and is located in New Delhi, India.

This first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent inspired several major architectural innovations, culminating in the construction of the Taj Mahal.
