  • Tomb and mosque of Isa Khan..
At a distance of 8 km from New Delhi Railway Station and 3 km from Hazrat Nizamuddin Station, Isa Khan's Tomb is situated to the south of Bu Halima's Garden in the Humayun's Tomb Complex.

The tomb of Isa Khan was built during his lifetime between 1547 and 1548. Isa Khan Naizi (1453 - 1548) was a nobleman in the courts of Sher Shah Suri and his son Islam Shah Suri. Coming from an Afghan origin, Isa Khan also served as a noble man in the courts of Ibrahim Lodi.

The octagonal tomb of Isa Khan is located at the centre of an octagonal complex and is surrounded by a beautiful garden. It is believed that Isa Khan's tomb influenced the architecture of Humayun's Tomb. The tomb is surrounded by a wide verandah, approachable by a flight of stairs. Each of the eight sides consists of triple arched entrances, decorated with blue, yellow and green glazed tiles. Each corner of the octagon is marked with slender tapering pillars rising above the roof and giving it a minaret like appearance. The roof containing the huge central dome crowned with an inverted lotus. The roof also contains 8 chattris on each of the 8 sides.

The interior contains six graves, but it is difficult to spot the grave of Isa Khan and nothing much is known about the other five graves. Seven walls of the tomb contain intricate lattice stone work but the Western wall contains a Mihrab. The walls contain fresco work but the highlight of the interiors of Isa Khan's Tomb is the circular fresco on the ceiling.
