Delhi : Arched Building in Mehrauli Archaeological Park

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

Arched Building is located in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, which is located near Qutub Complex on the Sri Aurobindo Marg, the closest Metro station being Qutub Minar

Arched Building

There are many small monuments in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, the best way to explore them is on foot. Though most of them are surrounded by bushes and wild growth, which sometimes makes it difficult to visit them. As these monuments are deserted it is advisable to go with friends for company. 

Not much information is available about the history of this monument apart from the signboard located near it.

The monument in the first photo is totally in ruins, the stone used for the construction is scattered around it with wild growth around it for company. 

The arched doors in the second photo have been worked on and restored. The wild growth around it needs to be removed. This reminded me of the arched fort walls of Vasai Fort. Though the roof atop it is missing, but the walls have small square shaped openings on the inside, maybe it was used to hold the roof.
