Jamali Kamali Park

Jamali Kamali Park, Delhi’s only archeological park at Mehrauli, is an enchanting green stretch that spreads over 200 acres encompassing over 20 historically significant monuments built over five centuries—from the early 11th century to the late Mughal period. The park is situated near the Qutab Minar, in South Delhi District.

The Delhi Development Authority had conceived and designed the park to make it one of the best heritage sites in the country. Well-planned, manicured and regularly maintained greens studded with rock outcrops add to its charm. Apart from the flora varieties, animal species like nilgai, foxes and peacocks are also found here – it may be the only place in Delhi to have such fauna.

Jamali Kamali Mosque, Quli Khan’s tomb, Gandhak-ki-baoli, Rajaon-ki-baoli, Madhi Masjid and Balban’s tomb are the major heritage sites in the park. Many of them have been declared as National Heritage Monuments.

Mehrauli is 18 km south of New Delhi Railway Station. ISBT at Kashmiri Gate is about 24 km north.
