Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Almost situated in Delhi, a historic site. Should you look at. Who wants to go down the stairs should set stench on impertinent urine.

  • It is huge and green with many seats and areas where you can sit in the shade. It is well maintained except for the rose garden which needs a bit of TLC. It was a bit hard to find as there were no signs that I could read. Happened to walk down a lane where GPS said and found it. It is well worth a visit.
  • Beautiful area, great for picnics and to soak in the rich heritage of Delhi. Its one of the few places untouched by rapid urbanisation and its a great escape with its greenery in the midst of Delhi. Nice trail with multiple monuments which leads all the way to Qutub Complex. Must visit for everyone in Delhi. Only issue I had with this place was that the main walking path wasn't paved, otherwise it is clean.
  • Wonder full place lush green views. Archeological history parks. Good picnic place on week ends. Easy in accibility via metro and bus
  • This place is magical. It features ruins from two millennia of Indian history. If you appreciate history you will return to Mehrauli again and again.
  • One of the greatest architecture in delhi. The place is full of greenery and consists of lots of monuments of Mughal era.

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.
