Mehrauli Archaeological Park Tours

star-3.5
2 Reviews
Mehrauli Archaeological Park
Spread out over 200 acres near the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Qutub Minar, the Mehrauli Archaeological Park is full of ruins and tombs, some of which are 1,000 years old. You’ll find ruins from the Khajli, Tughlaq, and Lodhi Dynasties, as well as from the days when India was under Mughal and British Raj rule.
 
The Basics
A popular add-on for travelers visiting Qutub Minar, this massive park is home to beautifully preserved old structures, such as  the Jamali Kamali Mosque and Tomb, full of pristine interior carvings. There's a traditional stepwell in the park that appeared in the Bollywood film Rang de Basanti, along with gardens and nature trails. The park is a stop on group walking tours of the area, and private tours focused on heritage and architectural sights.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The park is a must-visit for history buffs and anyone wanting to get out into nature.
  • Wear sunscreen and insect repellent, as there’s lots of jungle around the park.
  • Travelers with compromised mobility may find getting around difficult due to lots of uneven steps at the various monuments here.
 
How to Get There
The park is located in South Delhi, due east of the village of Mehrauli and a 20-minute walk or five-minute auto-rickshaw ride from the Qutub Minar metro station, on the Yellow Line of the Delhi Metro. It’s a 45-minute metro ride to Connaught Place. A footpath connects the park to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Qutub Minar, a 10-minute walk away.
 
When to Get There
The park is open daily from 5am to 6:30pm, and travelers heading there around dawn will be rewarded with small crowds and beautiful early morning sunlight that’s great for photography. Mornings here are also cooler, so it’s best to come before noon, particularly if you visit Delhi during the hot months of April and May.
 
Stepwells
Known locally as baoris, stepwells are ancient, deep reservoirs of water accessible via steps. In their early days, they not only provided water, but were also used for religious ceremonies and just cooling off. Many such wells remain to this day, and while some are active, others are preserved only as tourist attractions.
