Many kingdoms and religious traditions have shaped Delhi. It was the capital of the Mogul Empire in 1598, and the tomb of the second Mogul emperor Humayun lies at the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site (there are 3 in Delhi).
The architecture of the tomb with its Persian domes and arches is very similar to the Taj Mahal in Agra. Hanuman Mandir is one of the most spectacular Hindu temples in Delhi. It is characterized by a 33-meter-high statue of Lord Hanuman, the monkey goddess. During the evening devotions, the hands of the huge figure move slowly to reveal golden images of Lord Shri Rama and Devi Sita in the chest.
