The famous minaret whose construction was started by Qutab -U- Din Aibak and which was then further augmented by subsequent rulers of Delhi is the historic icon everyone longs to visit in Mehrauli. Thousands flock everyday to the premises which encloses one of the most famous monuments of India, the Qutab Minar everyday.  Just adjacent to this tourist hotspot is the not so popular Mehrauli Archaeological Garden which also has quite a few relics from the times of sultanate and Mughal era. Most of them are however dilapidated now and not in prime condition. Unlike the Qutab complex this garden does not get as crowded and mostly attracts morning walkers and youngsters from nearby areas who use it as a playground. Here are some images  from a photo-walk we took around this park a few days back:

We spent most of the time practicing our shots at Rajon Ki Baoli – A step well made for the masons during its prime now an abandoned structure.
