This is – ONE OF THE BEST KEPT SECRETS OF DELHI.
Mehrauli Archaeological Park is an archaeological area spread over 200 acre in Mehrauli, Delhi, adjacent to Qutub Minar. It consists of over 100 historically significant monuments. It is the only area in Delhi known for 1,000 years of continuous years of occupation. Mehrauli Village is one of the more unusual trudges in our list of heritage walks. It is a historic village, the first cities of Delhi came up here, & there is plenty of evidence of prehistoric settlements on the ridge area.
There are lush green lawns, open spaces and children's park. To a large extent the path is clearly marked with trees on both sides. The arrangement of stones on top of a small hillock is quite intriguing.
