    That's not a mughal architecture. It's good place to visit specially for scholars.

    Just near the Alai Minar is the tomb of Iltutmish who was the the successor of Qutubuddin Aibak and was the greatest ruler of the Slave dynasty. Iltutmish's tomb is one of the earliest examples of the spectacular Muslim architecture in India. This tomb is a square tomb without a dome . It is believed that the dome was originally there but had fallen off later. When you look at this monument from outside it looks like a very simple and plain tomb . Once you enter inside, you can see the tomb very beautifully and ornately carved from inside. The cenotaph is made of marble with some calligraphy on its base.

    Beautiful, Islamic caligraphy and ayats, however it will be in ruins due to poor maintainance.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
