    Impressive ruins and a pretty big tower all nicely presented in well tended gardens. Definitely worth a look if you are in Delhi

    This was a very interesting site to visit. Several people to whom I sent photos assumed it was the Taj Mahal, which allowed for a discussion on the differences between the two sites. I especially enjoyed comparing the two sites, with the differences between the red stone and white marble. Note when planning a visit that the stairs leading up to the building are very steep.

    Such a marvellous temple with beautifully decorated interiors. The temple complex is very neat and clean. You will feel peace and positive vibes once you enter inside. The closest metro station is Nehru Place.

    This is well maintained Well which was used to store the water during those olden days. Nothing much to see here other than photography. Best part of this place is it is well maintained step well with mesmerized architecture surrounding all 4 sides.

    Nice start to a visit of Chandni Chowk. The mosque is right next to the old city centre. The building itself is quite nice, but not extraordinary. Great place to watch people, especially in the streets around the mosque. You need to take of your shoes and have to pay a small fee for taking in cameras.

    I visited this fort in October 2020. Ticketing was via mobile app only due to Covid restrictions. It is in the care of Archeological Survey of India. Entry fee is Rs 20 for Indians, 250 for foreigners, includes both the fort and Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq tomb. There is car parking outside.

    The fort is majestic and covers a huge area of maybe 5-6 sq km, maybe half of which is demolished and now covered in forests and residential housing. It is surrounded by a now dried up moat. The outer walls are quite thick.

    Still, the walls are majestic and the remaining buildings do give an idea of the huge fort. There are a number of buildings at higher and lower levels, including residential areas, kitchen, prisons etc. From one of the higher points in the fort, one can see the entire surrounding countryside.

    There are a lot of monkeys in the complex. There are also cows that are brought for grazing by the villagers. But they dont bother humans anyway.

    Opposite the fort is the Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq tomb, formerly part of the same complex but now separated by a road.

    It is one of the 7 cities of Delhi and therefore a must see for people interested in architecture and history.

    The stepwells of Delhi have been made famous by the Bollywood movies shot there, the most famous of which was Rang de Basanti. Hidden within the Mehrauli Archaeological Park is this gem of a stepwell that is absolutely free from crowds. One can get really cool pictures here without any photobombers. The beautiful arches on the main level are a superb backdrop for pictures with a great play of light and shadows.

    The ASI is doing a superb restoration work and apart from the stagnant water, one can really enjoy the architectural beauty of the place. While going into the lower levels reaching to the water seem inadvisable due to the narrow steps in the dark littered with garbage, one must climb to the upper levels for the ornamented tombs and prayer areas. The view from the upper level shows the old and new juxtaposed in Delhi.

    I read this is the only surviving octagonal royal tomb. The building is beautiful and the grounds magnificent. In the same area as Humayun's Tomb. Both well worth visiting.

    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.

    Adham Khan, a general of the Mughal Emperor Akbar was the younger son of Maham Anga, Akbar's wet nurse. It lies on the walls of Lal Kot and rising from a terrace enclosed by an octagonal wall provided with low towers at the corners. It consists of a domed octagonal chamber in the Lodhi Dynasty style and Sayyid dynasty early in the 14th century. It has a verandah on each side pierced by three openings. It is known popularly as Bul-bulaiyan for a visitor often loses his way amidst the several passages in the thickness of its walls

    Delhi is full of medieval tombs, and most of them are fairly predictable when it comes to shape: most of them—probably somewhere around 95%—are domed. One of the rare exceptions, and that too a tomb which is pretty well-maintained, is the Tomb of Mirza Aziz Koka, foster-brother of the Mughal Emperor Akbar. The tomb was built in about 1623-24 CE.

    Chaunsath Khamba (’64 pillars’), is so named because its flat roof is held up by 64 pillars. The entire structure—roof, sloping overhang, walls and all surfaces of the large hall inside—are covered in white marble, with a few highlights in red sandstone. Besides the cenotaph of Mirza Aziz Koka himself, there are many other cenotaphs in this pavilion, presumably of his family members (interestingly, the tomb of Mirza Aziz Koka’s father, Atgah Khan, is one of the most beautiful tombs in Nizamuddin Basti—it is just a few metres away, nearer the Dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya.

    Recent conservation and restoration has been carried out at Chaunsath Khamba to clean it and repair sections. Interesting details of what was done as part of the project are on the signboard just outside the tomb. Entry to the tomb is free.

    The Western Court Building is a former colonial era building that was used to house visiting dignitaries, but is not used by members of parliament. Ordinarily, members of the public are not allowed to visit, but the guards let me have a quick wander around the grounds. The building is built in a very simple neoclassical building. The facade of the building including the neoclassical structures are pretty plain and devoid of decorations as far as I could tell. Fine to take a look if you’re in the area, but I wouldn’t go out of the way to see it.
