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

  • An oasis of peace and what a wonderful place. Very impressive and a place that you actually have to see if you are in Delhi.

  • The Mehrauli Archaeological Park, adjacent to the famous Qutub Minar is a vast archaeological area unknown Islamic mass tourism with access difficult to find due to lack of directions, the site is in the works for restoration of India but little until now was done and currently (2016) you are changing only the garden with archaeological remains scattered everywhere I have only visited the tombs of Muhammad Quli Khan, the Jamali Kamali Mosque with adjacent tomb of Maulana Jamali Kamali, the Park's weekly gathering of relaxation of the families in the area. No cost of entry

  • 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
