Barber’s Tomb

Barber’s tomb is the only tomb built inside the Charbagh including the main tomb It is just proximal to the Humayun’s Tomb. It has a mosque and two graves too, but there is no evidence about these graves. It said tomb, that this Tomb dedicated to the Humayun’s barber but there is no evidence. Another important thing is that there a number 999 carved on the one of the graves inside the tomb there may relate to the established date of the monument. From my opinion every big and small Heritage has their own charm whether it is famous or not doesn’t matter we always curious to know the interesting facts about the sites.
