    Mehrauli Archaeological Park
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    You will be picked up from your hotel in New Delhi in an air conditioned vehicle and driven to Mehrauli Archeological Park. We start our walk at Quli Khan’s Tomb or Metcalfe House. The tomb looks like a typical tomb from the outside but it was converted into a retreat by Metcalfe (an Englishman who belonged to the court of Bahadur Shah Zafar, the last Mughal ruler). Next, we see the Sultan Balban’s tomb, which has the distinction of having the first recorded arch built in India. It comprises of a Mosque and a Tomb constructed in 1528-1529. Our next stop is Dargah (saint’s mausoleum) of Bakhtiyar Kaki. this mausoleum is believed to resemble the inside of a jewellery box. The last stop will be a visit to the Rajon ki Baoli, which is a large historic step well that was created to provide water to the area. Adham Khan's tomb and an adjacent mosque are also a part of this site. After your tour ends, you will be brought back to your hotel in New Delhi.
