While walking around Nizamuddin in early November, I was able to take photos of structures I wasn’t able to before, or from views and angles I wasn’t able to before. I had previously written about many of these buildings in a post from 2009.
Do Siria Gumbad
This is the tomb whose dome is just about visible from the extension of Lodi Road that goes towards the Humayun’s Tomb roundabout (or more rightly the Sabz Gumbad roundabout). The last time I tried to get to it I didn’t see this path leading to the entrance (there is at least one family living in the tomb), in the first few photos. I was also able to get a look at the dome (last two photos).
Khan Jahan Tilangani’s Tomb
I was able to take photos of the roof of Khan Jahan TIlangani’s tomb, with its multiple domes (but no chattris). The tomb is surrounded by basti houses.
Ground-level views of the tomb:

Entrance to Kotla Nizamuddin
Bastion and outer wall of Kali Masjid
I had never seen this portion of Lal Mahal, a structure supposedly from the 13th or 14th c (and much altered since), which had been partially demolished a few years ago:
