INTACH Delhi chapter has undertaken restoration work in Mehrauli Archeological Park. Kudos to them for some excellent work.
I have been there many times but never saw these two tombs which have been recently unearthed from centuries of neglect.
As I walked into the Park from the Qutub Sahab ki Dargah side I was pleasantly surprised to find this kalash peeping out.A little further down and the full glory of another tomb being restored burst on me Work going on inside this tomb
Rajo’n ki Baoli is one of my favourite places in Mehrauli Archeological Park and right opposite it was a mound with a small chatri peeping out. To my surprise I saw this beautiful tomb structure with underground cells. Probably used as a madarsa
“The tomb is a domed chatri and occupies the centre of a raised enclosure containing numerous graves.The walls of the enclosure are broken with arched recesses and have octoganal bastions at each of the four angles, The chatri which measures 19′ by 6′ square and stands on a platform 4′ by 4′ is crowned by a dome supported on 12 stone piers.”
