This is one of Delhi's grandest Mughal mausoleums - and it used to be quite literally on my doorstep when I first lived in Delhi.
Khan-i-Khanan is the burial place of the Mughal-era poet and soldier who bore that title. He was otherwise known as Rahim, and was a pivotal figure in the court of the Emperor Akbar.
The tomb was built for Rahim's wife in 1598 - Rahim himself was interred here in 1627.
When I was Khan-i-Khanan's neighbour, the place was distinctly run down. It's now been fabulously restored as part of the Nizamuddin Urban Renewal Initiative with support from the Aga Khan Development Network.
Some of the marble on the dome has been replaced to give an idea of what the tomb must once have looked like.
Khan-i-Khanan and Humayun's Tomb nearby influenced the design of the Taj Mahal at Agra. But Khan-i-Khanan was later despoiled to provide building material for Safdarjung's Tomb in Delhi.
Just a couple of grouses: payment for admission is digital only and if you don't have 'Pay TM' that's a bit of a hassle.
And when I used to visit this spot thirty years or so ago, I loved to watch the hoopoes who nested here. It was a real joy. The cheel are still around, but this time ... no hoopoes! Boo-hoo!!
