Highlight Story

When the US president Barack Obama visits the world heritage site of Humayun’s Tomb on November 7 around sunset, he is set for a visual treat at the architectural marvel.

The golden rays of the setting Sun directly bathe the marble dome and the red-and-white facade of the west-facing main mausoleum highlighting each and every niche and mesh. Moments after the Sun set, the dome would be bathed in milky white lighting, something akin to watching a monument on a full Moon night.

The US first couple is expected to reach around 5 pm and spend around 45 minutes to one hour at the monument. HTC
