We asked random people of Delhi about what is their usual choice to hangout with their friends and family, we got responses like Connaught place, Qutub Minar, Palika bazaar, Janpath, etc..in general. But did you know that there is so much more than meets the eye, Delhi is really full of surprises. We have all seen the nightlife (Sab karke dekh liya yaar) but have you ever been to places never been explored before in Delhi. Here is the list of Unexplored Places in Delhi.
1) Tughlaqabad fort
Once a massive and magnificent structure is now a Ruined Fortress but still, doesn’t fail to impress . It is spread over a perimeter of 6 Km & was prevented from any kind of attack from all sides due to huge walls. This is why it tops our list of Top 5 Unexplored Places in Delhi. Shame it is largely unmaintained today and has very less visits.
How to Reach: You may reach the fort through the Mehrauli-Badarpur road in south Delhi. Nearest Metro Station is Govindpuri on Violet Line (Approx. 5 kms from the fort)
2) Chhota Qutub Minar or Hastsal Minar
“Arey bhai Qutub Minar to dekh lia, ab uske chhote bhai ko bhi dekhlo”
It was built by Shahjahan according to the archaeologists & used as a hunting lodge during 1650s. The sad part is it doesn’t even have a board mentioning its history. You people should definitely pay a visit.
How to Reach: Hatsal Minar is situated in the Hatsal village near Uttam Nagar. Nearest Metro Station is Uttam Nagar East on the blue line, from there you can take a Rickshaw.
3) Bhardwaj lake of Asola
Tired of the daily hassles? We bet you surely would like it here as it is awesome.
It is hard to believe that something like this could exist right in the middle of the city. Located in the wildlife sanctuary of Asola, this lake is the water source for the wildlife, especially monkeys. Take a walk or spend time with your friends from the daily rush of the city and away from all the traffic.
How to Reach: It is an isolated place, you can reach here by taking Suraj Kund road or by trek (Approx. 3kms) from Sec 43 Faridabad.
4) Haveli of Mirza Ghalib
Remember the 19th century poet?
If you didn’t know it yet, the archaeological survey of India has maintained his quality work in a heritage site. If you’re a historian and would like to know more about the rich history of Mughal empire, then this is the place you shouldn’t really miss. This place is a delight!
How to Reach: Ask anyone in Chandni chowk and they’ll show you the way to reach this place. Nearest Metro Station is Chandni Chowk on Yellow Line.
5) Chor Minar, Hauz Khas
No we haven’t misspelled it. This is not Char Minar!
Located in Hauz khas, this structure stands in a small park. Severed heads of thieves were hanged here for the public display to prevent public from any wrong doings.. *Shit Scary*
How to Reach: You can reach here by road through Aurobindo Marg. Nearest Metro Station is Hauz Khas on Yellow line.
6- Jahaz Mahal
Located in the historically rich area of Hauz Khas, the monument got it’s name due to it’s reflection in the nearby reservoir, giving it a look of the ship.
How to Reach: The nearest metro stations are Chattarpur and Qutub Minar from where it is just 15 mins walk away!
We bet, you wouldn’t have heard of these Unexplored Places in Delhi.
So Delhi, Go Explore the Unexplored…
