New Delhi: One of New Delhi's most famous monuments, a mausoleum that inspired the Taj Mahal, will be officially unveiled today after a six-year refit that has seen it restored to its original form. Humayun's Tomb, completed in 1570 by the Islamic Mughal dynasty that ruled most of northern India for more than three centuries, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the biggest draws for visitors to the Indian capital.
