The final resting place of Humayun is one of the most popular photography spots in Delhi. The 16th-century monument is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and makes for a good photograph, especially when clicked during sunrise and sunset. When you are hanging around at the Humayun’s Tomb, take some time out to explore and click photographs at the Lodhi Garden and Nizamuddin Dargah, which are also popular among photographers.

2. India Gate

The structure designed by British architect Edwin Lutyens commemorates the soldiers who lost their lives in the First World War. The gorgeous landmark makes for a perfect frame no matter at what time you visit it. We, however, suggest clicking it during dusk hours. If you are not a morning person, you can also go during evening time to capture the hustle and bustle over here.

3. Jama Masjid

Jama Masjid is every photographer’s dream muse, as the monument is brimming with frames wherever you see. Whether you want to click the masjid when it’s empty, or when it’s filled with people, during the daytime, or at night — choose your light and frame.

4. Lotus Temple

The establishment, which is also known as the Bahai Temple might remind you of the Sydney Opera House and Singapore’s new Art Science Museum, thanks to the similar structure. The temple ranks highly on every photographer’s favourite places to visit, and you would want to check it out for some eye-catching images.

5. Qutub Minar

The tomb that was constructed way back in the 18th century makes for one of the favourite photography spots in Delhi. The tomb that looks like a smaller version of the Humayun’s tomb is also one of the most common pre-wedding and post-wedding photo-shoot spots in Delhi. The beautiful garden and fountain around the central mausoleum give this place an intrinsic charm.
