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.

A part of prayer, also as a part with prayer, no Hindu prayer is complete without it’s holy submission. Ganga originating from the Himalayas, keep on flourishing the humanity with its serene flow.
