Each drink, from the Bubble Tea with its lofty mound of bubbles, to the Juniper Sling served in a perfume bottle, to the La’ Final with its well-executed (if not unoriginal) edible cigar, were presented in very unique fashion, an event. As these were being crafted, another bartender is working in the back corner crafting liquorice lollipops (which are used to top off the Suck First, Questions Later cocktail).
Humayun died in 1556, and his widow Hamida Banu Begam, also known as Haji Begam, commenced the construction of his tomb in 1569, fourteen years after his death. It is the first distinct example of proper Mughal style, which was inspired by Persian architecture. The tomb was constructed at a cost of 15 lakh rupees (1.5 million).The tomb proper stands in the centre of a square garden, divided into four main parterres by causeways (charbagh), in the centre of which ran shallow water-channels. The high rubble built enclosure is entered through two lofty double-storeyed gateways on the west and south. A baradari (pavilion) occupies the centre of the eastern wall and a hammam (bath chamber) in the centre of northern wall.Several rulers of the Mughal dynasty lie buried here. Bahadur Shah Zafar had taken refuge in this tomb with three princes during the first war of Independence (AD 1857). On the southwestern side of the tomb is located barber's tomb (Nai-ka-Gumbad) which stands on a raised platform, reached by seven steps from the south. The building is square on plan and consists of a single compartment covered with a double-dome. #monuments#architecture#historicalplace#persian#ancient#tripstagram#traveldiaries#travelblogger#places_wow#awesomepic#landmark#prisma#vibrant#instalikes#view#tomb#roundtheworld#instatravel#likeforlike#travelawesome#traveladdict#travelporn#awesomeplace#gateway
