Day 1

Ugrasen ki Baoli (Agrasen ki Baoli) is an Ancient Stepwell having it's own Rustic charm.
Open all days in week From 9a.m-5p.m (stay there till 6p.m or so) and being in just walking distance from "Barakhamba metro station" it's one of the surviving ancient Stepwell in Delhi which was said to be build by King 'Agrasen' in 14th century.(This one is the cleanest & most preserved monument as compared to other baoli's in Delhi). It is now being protected by Archeological survey of India and has no entry fee (that's great 👍). You can find people from every age group visiting and specially youngsters come in groups to sit and chat there for sometime.
It's 3 storey and has 108 steps (which I did not count but heard people talking about it there 😋) that goes down till the well - But- there's no water anywhere now (oops!)
But Still it's structural uniqueness makes it worth visiting and ofcourse it's use in so many Bollywood movies(p.k, Sultan) in recent years have made it very famous to be visited when in Delhi.

(If you don't mind walking, then from the Baoli you can walk upto C.P market and Even Janpath Market for shopping and to check out some amazing cafes🎉)
