Mehrauli Archaeological Park

0 Reviews


There are phenomenal wealth spread around Mehrauli, with in excess of 440 landmarks – from the tenth century to the British time – specking a woodland and the town itself behind the backwoods. In the woods, most amazing are the time-assaulted burial places of Balban and Quli Khan, his child, and the Jamali Khamali mosque, connected to the burial place of the Sufi artist Jamali. Toward the west is the sixteenth century Rajon ki Baoli, Delhi’s best advance well.

At the northern finish of Mehrauli town is Adham Khan’s Mausoleum, which was once utilized as a British living arrangement, afterward as a police headquarters and mail station. Driving northwards from the burial place are the pre-Islamic dividers of Lal Kot.

Toward the south of the town are the remaining parts of the Mughal royal residence, the Zafar Mahal, once in the core of the wilderness. Nearby to it is the Sufi place of worship, the Dargah of Qutab Sahib. There is a little graveyard with one void space that was expected for the last ruler of Delhi, Bahadur Shah Zafar, who kicked the bucket in a state of banishment in Burma (Myanmar) in 1862. South of here is a Lodi-period graveyard for hijras (cross dressers and eunuchs), Hijron ka Khanqah. The character of those covered here is obscure, however it’s an all around kept, tranquil spot, worshipped by Delhi’s hijra network. Somewhat further south are Jahaz Mahal (‘transport royal residence’, likewise worked by the Mughals) and the Haus I Shamsi tank.

Wild pigs rush about the woodland, while splendid green parakeets and huge dark kites dive from tree to tree. Troops of monkeys climb over the remnants, particularly at sunset. Stone columns with the names of the principle sights cut onto them manage you along the labyrinth like system of dusty timberland pathways; don’t come here past the point of no return in the day, as it tends to be anything but difficult to get lost.

You can arrive at the forested piece of the recreation center by turning directly out of Qutab Minar metro station at that point taking the little door to your left side, similarly as you arrive at the slip street that paves the way to Qutab Minar. Note, there is no undeniable passageway with English signage, however you’ll see the arranged park-like territory from the street.
