Mehrauli Archaeological Park, New Delhi

(4.3/5 based on 200+ 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. 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.

  • very well built and maintained by the authorities. always visit this place whenever i cme to delhi. the location is lil bit far from central delhi. but this plave has its historic importance.  more »
  • Full of squatters and trash as soon as you go down the path. We got lost, did not find the monuments, and wandered in to some sort of tent camp where we felt unsafe. Stick to Qutb Minar instead, or vi...  more »
  • Located a good distance away from the Centre. The Metro is the easiest way to get out there. Get off at Qutub Minar and walk or take a tuk tuk. You can go in at the blue sign at the roadside. Inside the park there are set piles of Earth that show the way to the different things. Is very peaceful to walk around and see the different spots. The guards would very much like to show a round, but cost of course at the end. If you have interest in these places is it worth seeing here otherwise you can jump it over.

  • 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
