The architect of the edifice was reportedly Sayyed Muhammad bin Mirak Ghiyasuddin and his father Mirak Ghiyasuddin who was brought in from Herat. Mirak Mirza Ghiyas, the architect of Humayun’s Tomb, designed it in a Persian ‘charbagh’, or square four-garden style enclosed by high walls on three sides, and the River Yamuna on the other. The Father of Humayun and the first Mughal emperor Babur had introduced this style in India. It reached its zenith over the years of Mughal rule, culminating in the magnificence of the Taj Mahal in Agra. According to the historian Laura Sykes, Humayuns tomb is perhaps the Taj’s masculine equivalent, both literally and to some extent architecturally, as the epitome of solid imperial style. The carvings, the inlaid work on the marble of the walls and the trelliswork in red sandstone, are the other special Mughal features of Humayun’s tomb.
