Delhi - Dilwalo ki - is a great city, being my hometown I loved the city because of the smiling faces, happy people, positivity in the environment and great nightlife. The city has lots more to offer in terms of history and this time when I went Delhi I thought to explore region nearby Mehrauli - a less known archaeological park and the sky touching Qutub Minar. I reached Mehrauli archaeological park at around 10:00 a.m and spent around 4 hours there. After getting out at 2:00 p.m. I went to Qutub Minar complex which is nearby to it and spent 3 hours in Qutub complex as well. It was a memorable heritage walk. If you are in Delhi and this trip will hardly cost you any money, it would be the cheapest and wonderful trip for history lovers.
Heritage walk through Mehrauli Archeological park
Delhi has been very popular among every ruler - a dream city for them. Thus the city has seen rise and fall of the various dynasty. Since 11th century Mehrauli is the oldest inhabited settlement in Delhi. The area in the archaeological park has several magnificent monuments to admire the culture of olden days. The place has several Boali - step well, mosque, mausoleum and many more. When you will get there you will feel that every monument is whispering its own tales.
The area is now maintained by ASI and lies just behind Qutub Minar complex but still, it is less known and attract very few visitors but you will love it if you are a history buff. There is no entry fee to the park, just backpack and plan your visit to Mehrauli with your camera.
