Entrance of Humayun's tomb - Delhi Photo Gallery

Bu'-Halima's Garden As the visitor approaches Humayun's tomb from Mathura road, he passes through a rectangular enclosure with a tomb in its northern half and a gateway on its east, which is in the same alignment as the main entrance of Humayun's tomb. Since the northern wall of the Arab-Sarai abuts on the plastered exterior of the eastern enclosure of this garden, it may have existed before the Arab-Sarai, built by Humayun's senior widow. The garden is known as Bu'-Halima's garden, and an unidentified lady is believed to have been interred in the above-mentioned tomb.
