Historic Site Tourist Spot
Explore a treasure trove of ruined monuments from the 6th to 19th century at Mehrauli Archaeological Park. Among the park's tombs, palaces, stepwells, and much more, the highlights remain a mosque and its adjoining tomb of Sufi poet Jamali Khamali, which displays his words on its interior walls. Be sure to bring plenty of water for your trip and comfortable shoes, as some terrain is uneven and you'll have to climb steps around the park.

  • This place is magical. It features ruins from two millennia of Indian history. If you appreciate history you will return to Mehrauli again and again.
  • This place is huge and beautiful. You'll get to see tombs and mosques. It's lush and proves to be a very photogenic place. You can chill out in the morning and the evening. It provides shady cool areas to relax, also it has light forest if you're up for an adventure. You can have a view of Qutub Minar and can also visit it from there. It's near to the Qutub Minar Metro station and is easily accessible. You can enjoy a silent time there. There aren't many shops around there so either pack some stuff for a picnic or order something when you reach there. It's near to saket so you can have your delivery within 10 minutes after being dispatched. Won't ruin it for you, go and explore it. It's a really nice place.
  • Fantastic place to spend some peaceful time with friends and family. Well maintained gardens and slopes are attractive and something to try with photography.
  • Very good place to explore history. And according to the historians this place is kind of haunted👻. Bird and animal life is colourful here, amazing place to visit with family. I went to this place for a heritage walk with school and a few historians.🌌
  • I wanted to go to qutab minar, but i couldnt afford the entrance fees. I accidently stumbled into this Parc instead. -no entrance Fee -no tourists, some locals -exploring the old Buildings in the Parc by yourself (adventure adventure!) -still See the minar! -clean, quiet, many places to Rest Recommend! But instead of qutab minar, additionally it would be a Bit boring since it belongs to the Same complex
