About The Event

Mehrauli Archaeological Park is the place where history meets tranquility. This archaeological park covers an area of about 200 acres and is one of the oldest places in Delhi. The Mehrauli Archaeological Park is located close to the Qutub Minar, in one of the most prominent places of Old Delhi. If counted you will stumble across at least 100 historically significant monuments! If one traces the time period of all the relics and remains that have been unearthed from this area, then they roughly cover the Khalji, Tughlaq and Lodhi dynasties that were a part of the Delhi Sultanate and then moves on to the reign of the Mughals and finally the period of colonization of the British. This is that particular section of the city, which, literally, reminds you about the sands of time!

The tour has been planned out in such a way so that you can go through all the important remains that have been excavated in this area. The tour starts off at the Metcalfe House, which has a history of its own. It was once the tomb of Thomas Metcalfe, an Englishman who belonged to the court of Bahadur Shah Zafar. From there onwards, you will move on to Balban's tomb and then Khan Shaheed's tomb. From there, you will move on to witness the perfect amalgamation of Indo-Persian architectural style at the Jamali Kamali mosque followed by the Dargah of Bakhtiyar Kaki, and then finally, Rajon ki Baoli. Having covered all the important areas, you will end this tour with a nice beverage!
