Neighborhood: Mehrauli/Qutub Minar
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 stories of the past can go on for years. Visitors need a whole day at the Mehrauli Archaeological Park to truly enjoy the opulent 1000-year old legacy of this neighbourhood. A great spot for picnics, this giant heritage park with Qutub Minar in the backdrop, has become a popular cricket playground among the local youngsters.

2nd Biggest mosque of Delhi
Nov 2019
This is the second biggest mosque of Delhi after Jama Masjid. It is in the medieval city of Jahanpanah founded by Mohd Bin Tughlaq. It has a massive courtyard where the huge gathering of people could take place for offering namaz. It has 64 domes and the courtyard is surrounded by living quarters for the pupils of madarsa inside the mosque. The monument is now completely surrounded present day colonies of Sarvapriya Vihar and Vijay Mandal Enclave. It needs urgent repairs for preservation.

Built during the rule of Feroz Shah Tugalaq, the masjid lies in the Begumpur village. Really a very big mosque but lacks proper care and maintenance.
The best thing is that one can take stairs and reach to the top of the mosque and get a clear overview of the nearby area. One can also see how big domes were made. Locals know it as Begumpur Fort.
The mosque has a very great architecture with arch galleries on three sides with domes on the top and a big courtyard in the middle.
The structure needs proper keep up so that it attracts more tourists and heritage enthusiasts.

History neglected

This mosque was built over700 years ago . It is in complete state of neglect . One has to walk over half a kilometre to reach there . An oasis of peace in a crowded and noisy surroundings, it has its own attraction . Religious organisations shoul come forward to preserve this monument .

This mosque is hidden amongst the residential buildings and isn’t easy to find. The mosque is completely in ruins now and is barely surviving.

Hidden Gem
Dec 2016 • Friends
This mosque is one of the many hidden gems that New Delhi has to offer. Hidden behind a residential colony the mosque will transport you to peaceful calm which is in quite contrast to the surrounding chaos. If you are into geocaching there is a geocache by the name of "Alice in wonderland" placed here. Do explore the terrace to get some views of the neighbouring surrounding.Its best that the mosque is frequented during daylight hours. No entry fee is required.one would need to walk for about 500 metres from the nearest parking area. Although the mosque is not architecturally that great; but I would recommend this place mainly because its off the tourist map; peaceful; not touristy; for the adventurous types.

Grand Tughlaq era Masjid which fallen into disuse and disrepair.
Dec 2014 • Solo
One had to search for this mosque in the surrounding areas of Begumpur and when you ask the people living in the surrounding areas about its location they look at you with curiosity as this place is hardly visited by anybody nowadays.
A huge mosque built about 700 years ago has fallen into total disuse and hardly anybody visits it. When I visited the place, it looked odd that in this huge mosque I was the only person in it. A calm look at the place would reveal the happier times of the mosque when thousands of people must be present together at one time as one does not come across such huge mosques in little known villages of Delhi.
Overall it must have been very important mosque in its time and it looks surprising that there are so many places built hundred of years ago and hardly anybody visits these places now.
