  • Zafar Mahal is situated in the heart of Mehrauli, adjacent to the Western Gate of Dargah of Hz. Bakhtiyar Kaki (r.a.). To reach there by road, go straight from Qutub Minar, passing Adam Khan's Tomb and Mehrauli Bus Stand. You will reach an open area with shops and Mehrauli Police Station. Just before you enter this open area, a road turns to your left, which will take you straight to Zafar Mahal. The area is congested and it is advised to take a two-wheeler or small car only. One can also walk from Mehrauli Bus Stand or take a cycle-rikshaw to the palace
  • Zafar Mahal is a heritage building constructed by Mughal king in centre of Mehrauli. The street is very narrow in front of this monument.
  • Depicts the characteristics of a declining power, and reminds us the history's lessons of later Mughal period, this monument built as a summer palace of last Mughal Emperors. Basically, the Mahal was first built by Akbar Shah- II, the father of Bahadur Shah Zafar-II, in the 18th century. The entrance gate that was reconstructed in the 19th century by Bahadur Shah Zafar-II, who wished to be buried in the precincts of the Zafar Mahal and the Dargah of Khwaja Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki. However, he was deported by the British to Rangoon (now Yangon) after the first war of Indian independence in 1857, where he died in 1862.
