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):

I reckon this place for all those who love spending time around greenery, monuments and birds.

  1. Very Beautiful pics,My favorite were the one with on which sunlight is coming after filtering from the green all around green, and one with the bug can be better. Pardon me I am stealing few pics for my desktop hope you don’t mind it :)

  2. Hi Ashish. Thanks for the kind comments on my Youtube video about Mehrauli Archaeological Park. Somehow I couldn’t find the ‘reply’ button there so came here to write :) First of all – you’ve captured these moments in your camera so beautifully! Just splendid .. very artful and as if you were in meditation while creating these :) Your suggestion about using a mic is quite valid.. its just that I tend to save some efforts there by keeping it simple and plain :) Moreover, the video that you have posted above happens to be my first video experiment. In my newer videos I have worked on cleaning the audio and even enhancing the volume. Mostly, it is difficult to capture good sound in heritage walks that happen in areas closer to the road-traffic. But its good enough even without the mic as you move to quieter places. Also, the moment the mic comes into picture…evone becomes conscious ..so we just avoid using too many gadgets :) Coincidentally, I have started a new video series about Mehrauli Archaeoogical Park this week itself…its has better audio video quality. The video where you commented is the first episode of the new series (the one shared on your site is the older series). And do let me know how I can ‘subscribe’ to your posts here…I have my blog on WordPress too but I couldn’t find the subscribe button here. Would love to see the moments you’ve treasured so beautifully. Stay connected. Blessings!
