Wide difference between the beauty of the monuments and the way in which they are kept and presented
sep. 2019
Etter å ha besøkt Qutb Minar-området, leide vi en motorsykkel for å nå den nærliggende Mehrauli arkeologiske parken. Vi forstod umiddelbart at dette er den eneste måten å få en ide om parken, siden den er veldig stor, monumentene eller ruinene deres er spredt over en stor overflate, og også den er ganske ensom; derfor virker det ikke spesielt trygt. Men selv med motorickshaw var vårt besøk ikke veldig fruktbart. Først av alt førte sjåføren oss til bare to (sannsynligvis de viktigste) monumentene i området, og hevdet at de andre ikke kunne besøkes. Men selv disse to monumentene ga oss ikke så stor tilfredshet. Jamali Kamali-moskeen var faktisk stengt, derfor måtte vi begrense vårt besøk til å se på utsiden, inkludert arkaden med vakre dekorasjoner. Rajon Ki Baoli (dvs. trinnbrønnen) ble også stengt; men i dette tilfellet kan du beundre dens fantastiske funksjoner, som stengingen som består av et gjerde. Men selv i dette tilfellet hadde monumentet et forsømt aspekt: ​​spesielt vannmassene i bunnen var strødd med flytende plastflasker. Dette til tross for at det ved den (lukkede) porten var to vektere (i tillegg til to politimenn), som tydeligvis ikke trodde det var deres plikt å samle de strødde flaskene. Men det har vært enda verre. Etter å ha manifestert for sjåføren vår forbauselsen for denne så beklagelige tilstanden til monumentet, svarte han (tekstlig): "hvis du betaler meg, vil jeg rense det umiddelbart". Det er klart hvorfor jeg ikke kan gi denne attraksjonen en høy hastighet.

Off the beaten track...deserted park filled with crumbling ruins of days gone by. Not recommended to visit on your own.
des. 2019
I had read about the step wells and tombs in Mehrauli archaeological Park and wanted to see it after visiting the Qutub Minar.
It was difficult to locate the place using Google maps as there are no proper sign boards to guide you to this site. Our driver who had lived in Delhi for 15 years and taken tourists around had never even heard of the place. After circling around the area twice we found it.
It's a strangely deserted, overgrown, run down sprawling place with old ruins and tombs scattered all over it. We had to park the car near a garden/park and go further and deeper into the archaeological park on foot. Luckily our driver was equally curious about this place and escorted us. Thank God he came along as it certainly didn't seem a safe place for two women to be alone especially as it was late evening and the sun was setting. Plus there were some unruly youngsters hanging around the tombs and Agrasen ki Baoli who seemed to be using the place to have a drink or two surrepticiously which made us feeel uncomfortable and unsafe.
The Rajon ki Baolli, a step well was worth seeing as was Jamali Kamali an old mosque in red sandstone where the sufi saint cum poet Jamali is buried. There is a large courtyard and although the prayer hall of the mosque was closed the arches leading to it were beautifully inscribed with Urdu calligraphy.
I wouldn't recommend this as a must see place. It is in a semi jungle like area with pathways leading to the different structures. The sign boards are not very easy to follow and basically the place has not been maintained. Not many tourists come here. So I would advise ladies not to venture here alone. Better to go in a large group.

Historically rich but badly maintained
des. 2019
Every few years the archaeological park gets a face lift but poor maintenance and general apathy makes the place dirty and buildings crumble. The most important monument in this park is the tomb of Balban and his son. Balban's tomb is the first Islamic arch in India. To the east of Balban's tomb, lies a ruined rectangular structure said to be the grave of Khan Shahid, Balban's son, whose original name was Muhammad, who died fighting against the Mongols near Multan in 1285.

Wide difference between the beauty of the monuments and the way in which they are kept and presented
sep. 2019
After visiting the Qutb Minar area, we hired a motorickshaw to reach the nearby Mehrauli Archaeological Park.
We immediately understood that this is the only way to get an idea of ​​the park, as it is very large, their monuments or ruins are scattered over a large surface, and also it's rather lonely; therefore it doesn't appear particularly safe.
But even by motorickshaw, our visit was not very fruitful.
First of all, the driver led us to only two (probably the most important) monuments of the area, claiming that the others could not be visited. But even these two monuments didn't give us much satisfaction.
The Jamali Kamali Mosque was in fact closed, therefore we had to limit our visit to a look at the exterior, including the arcade with beautiful decorations.
Rajon Ki Baoli (ie the stepwell) was also closed; but in this case, being the closure constituted by a fence, you can admire its splendid features.
But even in this case, the monument had a neglected aspect: in particular the body of water at the bottom was littered with floating plastic bottles. This despite the fact that at the (closed) gate there were two keepers (in addition to two policemen), who evidently did'nt believe it was their duty to collect the strewn bottles.
But there has been even worse. Having manifested to our driver the amazement for this so deplorable state of the monument, he replied (textually): "if you pay me, I will clean it immediately".
It is clear why I cannot give this attraction a high rate.

Dirty, covered in litter. Lacking proper signage and information. Buildings rather neglected. Not easy to find.

Treasure hidden in plain sight
des. 2019 • Par
This is a gem of a historical site hidden in plain sight in Delhi in close vicinity of the Qutab Minar. A short walk from the Qutab Minar metro station (walk rather than pay ₹50 that the auto drivers charge new visitors). Main entry is bang opposite Adam Khan's tomb.

This site has been used by the different Empires of Delhi and has tombs, step-wells, mosques, pleasure palaces, stables, rose gardens and offers a superb view of the Qutab Minar. Restoration work is on in several buildings and structures. While it is not yet chargeable, sufficient information has been provided for the explorers. Best a daytime activity of 2-3 hours. Carry water as nothing is available inside. Surprisingly clean toilets were there.

One can look up following places on Google before visiting:
1. Balban's tomb
2. Jamali-Kamali tomb and mosque
3. Quli Khan's tomb
4. Rajon ki Baoli
5. Metcalfe's folly
6. Metcalfe bridge
7. Horse stables
8. Various Mughal era tombs and boat house.

A must visit place in Delhi
des. 2019
I came to know about this place through lonely planet India magazine. To reach there i followed google map and reached somewhere close to it but unable to locate it. Finally i found it with the help of a helpful local person. The final few hundred meters indicated by Google Map is to be covered on foot not even by two wheeler. So the best way is to go up to Ahinsa Stal and the entry to the site is just opposite to it, just by the side of Gurgaon- Mehrauli highway. This entry leads to a parking place and accessible by 4 wheelers.
Once inside there is so much to see. Mosque, Lawns, Tombs and a step well also. They are all connected by unpaved trail. So wear good footwear. The whole area is tree covered and well shaded from sun. Carry your water bottle.

One of the best free things to do in Delhi
des. 2019
The Mehrauli Archaeological Park is an area of archaeological research has is just being renovated by the Archaeological Survey of India. What the organisation have done so far is pretty good and it’s still free to enter. The site has been used by various empires that have ruled from Delhi from prehistory, through the Rajputs and Delhi Sultanates, right up to the British Empire.

Even though the site has not been laid out perfectly for tourism, much of the major attractions can already be reached by well paved walkways. Some of the best things to see include the Tomb of Mohammed Quli Khan, the Jamali Kamali Mosque and Tomb, the Tomb of Khan Shahid, Masjid Sohailwali or just wandering around the well kept gardens and grounds of the park

It is hard to find out this site in Mehrauli to Gurgaon road, and that is a shame. Wonderful place to visit. Need Two Hours of time in hand to completely visit this place. Would be better if you find a guide or someone truely knows the history behind it.

A hidden gem in the city
nov. 2019
It is a marvel how this 100 acre heritage site is invisible on the Mehrauli Gurgaon road. You would need a historian to guide you through the different periods in our history. Perfect for a two hour ramble on a wintry day. We took the Delhi Heritage Walk guide..
