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.

  • nice place to do pre-wedding photoshoot in delhi. Not much to do here but archaeological remains make pictures look antique and classic 
  • Unlike the nearby park of the Qutab Minar, access to the Archaeological Park is free and there are many beautiful tombs and mausoleums to visit as well as two tanks derived from wells for water harvesting. It seems that one of them contains sulphurous water and during the visit we encountered several pilgrims plunged. NELA Park roamed free different animals ... we had a face to face with a kind of wild boar (pig or all black) but it was absolutely tame. Many tombs are closed by a metal rail as there are only two guards to control the whole Park, however, if you are interested in to take a few photos up close, for a few rupees the Guard will be happy to open up and take you. In the Park you can make beautiful walks, there is much green, some mausoleums had been transformed by the British in summer cottages since this is apparently a very "fresh" from Delhi, is also a beautiful rose garden left by one of the Lords. There's also a lot less people than the Qutab Minar, Park if you want some peace is absolutely recommended
