    Humayun's Tomb then vs now

    You must have visited the famous monuments and tourist places of Delhi at least once (if you haven’t, it’s high time you do!) and wondered what they looked like in the bygone era. Yuvraj Khanna, an avid photographer from Delhi, went a step further to find that out! Four months back, this 24-year old decided to go ahead with his unique, yet creative idea and started hunting for old photographs of popular Delhi monuments on the internet.

    What he did with those is making the youth go gaga over his Instagram profile today!

    Scroll down to see these timeless wonders through his eyes…or rather, lens!

    “Since culture and history is so deeply ingrained in Delhi, travelling through time in this city is a feeling made real whether it’s through a street name that has an old lore attached to it or through physical manifestations of the city’s architecture that we all love so much,” is what an excited Yuvraj told Buzzfeed earlier this week.

    Interesting, isn’t it? Now why don’t you share this with your friends and let them too take a virtual tour to the past through this budding photographer’s excellent photowork. And if you’d like to suggest to him more monuments he could cover, feel free to pop them in the comments below!
