    This is one of the many UNESCO World Heritage Sites you'll find in India and definitely one of the main tourist attractions of Delhi. Its construction started in the 12th century. Prior to 1981 the tower was open to the public, but visitors are no longer allowed to enter it. At any rate, the tower still looks very impressive not only due to its height but also due to its structure and design. The entire complex surrounding the tower is beautiful and has many admirable structures. Highly recommended!

    Great place to visit . Entrance fee is about US$7 where you can buy online. A suggestion is to visit in the mornings so that you get the whole place to yourself .

    There are some impressive and simple exhibits that highlight of the history as well as some of the artifacts that are quite informative . Good to spend about 30-45 minutes in this attraction before moving on to other sites . As it opens s at sunrise and during summer , Great plan to see this site together with Qutub Minor before 0800hrs to escape the sunlight !

    Built in the 17th century, this place is rich in history and is an active religious center as well. It used to be the imperial mosque of the Mughal empire until 1857. Today it's one of the most visited sites in Old Delhi due to its impressive architecture and structures. It's a must visit place in Delhi, very accessible by public transportation (especially by the metro subway). Check the schedule first before visiting the site.

    Bang in the heart of Lutyens’s New Delhi stands a medieval step-well, one of Delhi’s few surviving step-wells (and most ornate too). The Agrasen ki Baoli, or Ugrasen ki Baoli, references a King Agrasen/Ugrasen, of the Sisodia clan, who is regarded as the forefather of the Agrawal community. Agrasen/Ugrasen is believed to have built this baoli, which (given that Agrasen/Ugrasen ruled some 5,000 years ago) seems hard to believe. The baoli’s architecture, in fact, is more distinctly Lodhi in style.

    The steps here number just over a hundred, and descend three levels to get down to the water (which is stagnant and filthy). On either side, similar to other step-wells such as Rajon ki Baoli, there are rows of arched cells. Just above the baoli, off to one side, is a mosque with arches and medallions of incised plaster.

    No entry fee is required to enter. Try to visit on a weekday, when it’s less crowded, or if on a weekend, well before noon. Later in the day, because of the baoli’s popularity with cinema lovers (scenes from a couple of Hindi films, PK and Sultan, have been filmed here), it gets quite busy.

    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.

    Baolis or step-wells were once common features across the more arid parts of India, including Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat. The basic feature of a baoli is that it consists of a series of steps leading down to the water level: as the water level recedes over time due to use or evaporation, you must climb down more steps to get to the water. Delhi has several step-wells, such as the ones at Nizamuddin and at Purana Qila; Agrasen ki Baoli, Gandhak ki Baoli (also in Mehrauli, and approachable through the Mehrauli Archaeological Park), and this one, named for stonemasons or raj.

    Besides the main body of the baoli (which is surrounded on either side by shallow cells or rooms that could be used for rest), there is a pillared pavilion up above.

    When we visited, the main gate was locked and we were not allowed to go in. The water in the baoli was almost up to the level of the topmost step, and looked very green and stagnant.

    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.

    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

    Bikaner House is a prominent cultural centre in a refurbished heritage building located on the India Gate hexagon between Pandara Road and Shahjahan Road. It was built as a palace of the Maharaja of Bikaner. Bikaner House hosts exhibitions, performances, cultural events and receptions, shoots, and more. It has arts+ shopping+ food, that makes it a must-visit place in the heart of the city, it is also home to several award-winning restaurants serving ethnic Indian cuisine including Rajasthani cuisine (Chor Bizarre), an elegant coffee shop serving Italian and Continental (Diggin), and Haldiram’s serving Indian food, snacks, sweets and namkeens etc. We entered the Haldiram from Shahjahan Road gate and enjoyed the variety in food. We also saw the art exhibition going on there.

    A domed octagonal structure, Sher Mandal stands just across from the Qila-e-Kohna. Its name seems to suggest that it was built by Sher Shah Suri, but its architectural style is said to be closer to that of the Mughals. It’s an unusual shape for a Mughal building, but Sher Mandal is, historically speaking, a very important building. This was the home of Humayun’s library, and in January 1556, it was here that Humayun suffered a fatal fall. The story differs; some believe that he realized it was time for the namaaz and was hurrying down the stairs when he tripped; others believe that Humayun was descending the stairs when the aazaan sounded and he knelt on the steps, thus falling.

    At any rate, the stairs at Sher Mandal were what caused Humayun to fall, and he died on the fourth day after that. Visitors are not allowed into Sher Mandal, so there’s really nothing you can see except the outside of the building. Very close by is the hamaam, the royal bathhouse, though here too the structure is closed off and there’s nothing to see except low walls of thin lakhori bricks.
