Spread out over a 200-acre (81-hectare) area, the Mehrauli Archeological Park in South New Delhi is a history-buff’s playground. Home to more than 100 historically significant sights built over a period of approximately 500 years, a visit to Mehrauli is a study in more than 1,000 years of Delhi history. The city of Mehrauli was founded in the first century, one of the seven ancient cities that comprise modern day New Delhi.
One of the park’s must-see monuments are the Jamali Kamali Mosque and Tomb, built during the early sixteenth century with red sandstone and marble accents.
