Explore a treasure trove of ruined monuments from the 6th to 19th century at Mehrauli Archaeological Park.

  • I wouldn't say this park is a must, but it is definitely a great stop on your way to Qutb Minar (if walking from metro station). Monuments in the park, and the park itself, are kept decently clean so ...  more »
  • Nice place to visit. Huge complex near qutub minar delhi. Tombs, gardens etc are specialty of this place. 
  • It's one of the more peaceful and to some extent a spooky place too. You wouldn't hear much about it, till it came in some of the recent Bollywood movies. But if you love exploring these historical si...  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
