Walks to Remember: Mahrouli Archeological Park

 

This place has almost 100 monuments of different clans and dynasties. It has been said that it was the very first ancient Delhi city. The Turks, Persians, Rajputs, Mughals and even English, all lived here. Just behind the Qutub Minaar, spread in green belt you can see monuments peeping out of tree bed. Not many people know about it, as excavation has started recently and ASI has started maintaining it very recently. Thanks to Commonwealth Games!

This Youtube video gives the rare description about the park and it’s importance(Thanks for the efforts and beautiful music of Aditya Pathak):

Walks to Remember: Qutb-Minar!

Walks to Remember is a new series to aggregate my photographic experiences, which I’ve started doing every Saturday morning.
I started these walks to kindle the much needed learning sessions in my photography. They say you always have to utilize the Golden hours, that is the reason I have chosen mornings.

Though this episode is second in the series chronologically, but I was excited enough to put it first.
Qutb-Minar is the first image that comes in mind, when you hear Delhi. It has really become an emblem of Delhi. All the government post-cards, tickets and posters have it on them.

I entered Qutb-Minar at 6:45AM. I was the first visitor, and it was so fresh there with mist on the grass, first sun-shine cruising through fog, golden sun-shine on Minaret and birds chirping allover. I think it’s the best time to visit any monumental place,  and this is a big realization that came through my mind. I really tried to capture it from all angles possible.
It really takes your attention to the past, when this 79m tall minaret would have been erected. Rest these photographs say!
