Mehrauli Archaeological Park, New Delhi

4.3
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.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
