Obamas visit Humayun's Tomb at Delhi

US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle on Sunday had a glimpse of India's rich cultural and historic heritage as they visited the 450-year-old Mughal marvel Humayun's Tomb in New Delhi. Obama, who kicked off his engagements in Delhi with the visit to the 16th century marvel, went around with his wife intently getting the feel of the monument, which is said to have inspired the creation of Taj Mahal. 49-year-old Obama and Michelle drove to the monument soon after their arrival from Mumbai at the airport in New Delhi, where the US' first couple was personally received by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur.
Obama became the first American President to visit Humayun's Tomb, the resting place of Mughal emperor Humayun, which is an artistic precursor to the 17th century monument of love Taj Mahal. "Wonderful. Let's take a look," Obama said as he entered the main building.
