Introduction

During that time, dedicated helpers or servants of Mughal emperor, also maintains a special status. This is evident from this Barber's tomb. They had also received high respect in compare to others. This particular tomb is the only structure to be built within the Humayun's Tomb complex after the completion of the emperor's mausoleum.

History

It is known that the individuals interred here are male & female respectively, but their identity is not clear. Both the graves are embossed with Quranic inscriptions & one of them is marked with the number 999, which represents the Hijra year when the tomb was built (1590-91 AD). Several historical structures surround the famous Humayun's Tomb. The Barber's Tomb happens to be the only structure standing inside the large square (char - bagh), which houses the magnificent Humayun's Tomb at the very centre. The red sand stone faced, tilted canopies, minarets and sandstone screens give the tomb its striking character. The tomb has within it the ornamental cenotaphs of one male and one female. The water channels around the tomb were added between 1905 and 1909."
