Rajon ki Baoli : Mehrauli Archaeological Park – Part 7

Rajon ki Baoli – A massive step-well from the Lodhi era, this structure within the Mehrauli Archaeological Park acted as a source of water and also a place for public gatherings and socializing back then! As we climbed up we also saw the deep well connected to this Baoli and also a medieval era Mosque and a Tomb which serves as good example of the Indo-Islamic architecture. We also get to know how a circular tomb used to be placed perfectly atop a polygonal building back then!! Happy Exploring 🙂

Quli Khan’s Tomb (Metcalfe’s Dilkush) : Mehrauli Archaeological Park – Part 6
