History should be preserved but somehow some of these places in the city, have been brought to a great ruin and are undiscovered.
Here are 8 Historical places of Delhi that you may not know:
1. Tughlaq-era Mahal, Mahipalpur
At one point, the monument served as a makeshift school run by the village Panchayat. Today, it is used as a go-down for construction material or for parking. Many stray animals have also made it their home.
2. Mirza Ghalib’s Haveli
This great Poet is considered as one of the maestros in Urdu Literature and Poetry, however, his home seems to a neglected and lost artefact in the city of Delhi.
3. Heritage Structures of Chirag Delhi
Covered by an array of jungles and multi-storey houses, this historical gem of the city has suffered the ravages of time.
4. Lal Mahal in Nizamudin
Encroached upon by residents and covered with garbage and dirt, this piece of heritage even churned up political conflicts, though with no results.
5. Nila Gumbad
With no beautification for a ‘one of its kind’ monument of this city, this site is treated as a dump for railway sleepers.
6. Rajon Ki Baoli
Treated as a bath house, this structure sufferes the struggles of pollution that poisons its central attraction and beauty.
7. Pir Ghaib
The oldest surviving astronomical observatory of India, stands in ruins and has been turned into a playground for young children, utterly neglected and disregarded.
8. Mehrauli Archaeological Park
Clustered with garbage and filthy water bodies, this heritage park is far from being considered an exemplary archaeological invention.
