    This fascinating complex contains remains of the first mosque built in India going back to around 1200 CE. The complex of buildings, towers, minarets, and some crumbling ruins make for a great history lesson and photographic adventure. The site can be very crowded but is quite large and you can wander peacefully. We had a guide who explained the significance of the various sites and left time then to photograph the intriguing ruins. Do not miss the famous Iron Pillar originally built around 400CE and has a huge amount of metallurgical history. There is an entry fee but the whole trip, a short distance from the centre of Delhi, is well worth it

    This is part of Mehrauli archeological park. It is a thirteenth century mosque with very beautiful architecture. There are three domes and inside there are beautiful carvings on the walls, of Quranic verses. It also has a well and a tomb structure inside the complex. There is also an ancient huge tree. Definitely worth seeing.

    Probably this may be the only Pillar which diameter is more important than its height. As shown in a hindi movie if you hold both your hand around the pillar on your backside then your wish may be fulfilled. Another aspect is the pillar is made by a hindu ruler which is inside a Muslim complex of Qutab Minar. However, the pillar is covered and you are not supposed to go inside it. But the most important is that though the iron pillar is standing in open air for ages but still it is rustles.

    This is the mausoleum of Shams ud-Din Iltutmish, the second Sultan of the Mamluk Dynasty of the Delhi Sultanate. From the exterior, the tomb looks like a simple square shaped structure, but the inside is far more ornate with the usual precisely chiseled relief of geometric patterns. Like a precursor of Islamic monarchs of the subcontinent, a marble cenotaph stands over the grave of the sultan. One of the more interesting structures inside Qutub Minar archaeological site,

    It's an unfinished minar but a much wider scale and circumference than qutub minar. Only one floor was completed. One can only guess by looking at it, how big it would have been. It's a massive stone structure.

    This tomb is the mausoleum of Imam Zamin, an Imam of the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque inside the Qutub Minar complex and said to be a direct decendent of Muhammed. The mausoleum looks deceptively like multi-storeyed building, a common feature of the Lodhi Dynasty. The sides of the building are latticeworks and it’s possible to peer inside to see the marble cenotaph. It’s a cute little building and looks interesting as it’s right in the line of sight of the more famous tower in the background. One of the more interesting structures to see inside the complex.

    This is a must see when you visit the vibrant city of Delhi. The archaeological site is in the heart of the city and offers its visitors an unforgettable experience. The architecture is magnificent
    and the history behind it is amazing.

    If you are looking for a temple where you can be spiritually uplifted or spend time meditating without being disturbed by cacophony, then this is the temple. Meticulously clean and well maintained the serene and quite atmosphere is quite uplifting. Every Sunday on prior booking you can have the temple lunch or prasad.

    Located inside a fort a little outside of Delhi. The tomb of such a historic man who ruled Delhi 700 years ago is now of little significance today. Still worth visiting once to have a look at the architecture.

    Darya Khan Tomb is located in Kidwai Nagar East in New Delhi. Darya Khan Lohani was at a high pedestal in the Lodi Kingdom at Delhi. The tomb is currently been renovated by Archaeological Survey of India. It has got four Domes at corners and grave at the centre. Arabic scriptures are found inside the dome spherical ceiling. It is a green, calm and quiet place. Nearby is a Market, known as Kidwai Nagar East Market. NBCC has developed a park and nice surroundings and greenery around the tomb. Good place for morning walk.
