This is a truly impressive place. The facilities are quite spread out and include not only the main tower but a mosque and several tomb monuments.

Home to the most beautiful step wells in the country,
Jamali Kamali Mosque and a 200 acre park with facets
of heritage peeping at you from every nook and cranny,
Mehrauli is one of those treasure houses where the

truly enjoy the opulent 1000-year old legacy of this
neighbourhood. A great spot for picnics, this giant
