Notes on the Geography of Northern India: Delhi: Humayun's Tomb: Photo 1
The grounds of Humayun's tomb are laid out in a char bagh design, with water channels dividing the 13-acre site into a garden of 36 identical squares, of which the tomb on its square terrace occupies the central four. The tomb chamber is octagonal under its double-shelled dome--India's first--which vaults an inner chamber 48 feet in diameter. Around the periphery of that inner chamber are four octagonal towers, between which are four porches with iwans, or high arches. Members of the royal family lie in these subsidiary octagons.
