(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Located near Qutub Minar , this is a must visit place for history lovers. The park has lot of historic monuments kept in good condition and is spread over 200 acres. The most famous monument is Rajaon...  more »
  • Free entrance, good for a walk around as it is only about a 10 minute walk from qutub minar. There was a tomb, mosque, park and more.  more »
  • The place was pretty cool. It gets repetitive and is pretty far spread. To be honest, it may be more expensive, but I would personally skip Mehrauli and just go to Qutub.  more »

  • An expansive archeological park , a green space with important pre Mughal and Mughal era ruins and monuments.If you want to visit a heritage trail or monuments which off the beaten path , this would be wonderful place to start.And i must add , it is park and the monuments are extremely well maintained.
  • I don't understand ye archaeological survey wale karte kya hain, kuch maintenance ka bhi khayal rakho anyway a must visit
  • It's a treasure trove for history and archeology lovers, perhaps no other place could offer so many landmarks on a single park trail. HOWEVER, the rampant encroachment and the sheer scale of disregard this place is facing will end up making you sad.
  • Mehrauli Archaeological Park is one of the monuments built by Islamic architects. It was built during the times of Sultans who were rulers of Delhi. The Monument is about thousands of years old, you will see the number of tomb and mosque in this monument, the monument is surrounded by lush green park that gives you more adventure, You will get both Hindu & Islamic archaeological feel here.
  • Lovely park. A history buff's paradise. So many unique monuments present here which are skein visited by tourists. Had a lovely existence. But was sad to see that some people have encroached on the premises of the park. ASI , please do something about it
