One of the unexplored place in Delhi is Mehrauli Archeology Park which reside in the Mehrauli, an area between Delhi and Gurgaon. It is an archeological site and one of the oldest extant forts in Delhi.
Around Mehrauli Archeology Park
When I shifted to Delhi, I was very excited to explore the city and the best way to do it is with a Photo Journey. I was scanning through the Facebook post, that’s when I came across the Delhi Photography Club and their Photo Walk to Mehrauli Archeology Park. I quickly rsvp myself and was looking forward to the day.
Monuments in the park
The Photo Journey started with everyone gathering at Bhool Bhuliya. It is located very near Qutub Minar. If you get a chance, do visit Qutub Minar. It is located in huge complex and more than the main build (Qutub Minar), the construction around it is fabulous.

Bhool Bhuliya is a tomb of Adam Khan, who served in Mughal Emperor. Bhool Bhuliya means maze or labyrinth. Though the building doesn’t have any maze, but it does contain architectural importance.

Moving on in our Photo Journey, we headed to the premises of the Mehrauli Archeology Park. The entire park has over 100 significant monuments, some maintained and some destroyed.
