Description

Walk in Mehrauli, the first of the seven cities that were built in Delhi and a location for building activity spanning across 10 centuries. Explore: - Akbar’s foster brother Adham Khan's Tomb built in 1562 - Gandhak ki Baoli- Step Well built early 13th CCE - An unnamed Mausoleum late 15th or early 16th CCE - Rajon Ki Baoli- Stepwell of “Masons” built in 1516 (so called because a group of masons had been living inside the mosque adjacent to the Baoli, till they were encouraged to find alternative accommodation in the early 1910s) - Metcalf's Bridge, built in mid 19th Century - Quli Khan's Mausoleum built in the 16th C, renamed Dilkusha and converted into a summer retreat by Thomas Theophilus Metcalfe, British resident at Delhi between 1813 -1853 Metcalf's Folly and Guest House also built on the same property The walk concludes at the Mausoleum of Ghyas-ud-Din Balban, the site of the earliest use of the true arch and Dome, but before this we visit the Mosque and Mausoleum of Sheikh Fazl-Ullah; this mosque's design was to have a lasting impact on Mosque designs to evolve in later centuries and the Stucco work on the ceiling in the mausoleum and the glazed tile work in combination with stucco work is breathtakingly beautiful. Through the walk you will be exposed to the gradual mixing of two traditions of construction and two separate traditions of architectural detailing and the eventual merging of the two into a complete whole that draws upon both the indigenous traditions and the central asian traditions and is yet singularly unique both in its detailing and its execution.
