You just soak in the interesting facets of Delhi's history in this 3 hour walk through the Mehrauli Archeology Park. The trip will rummage through the forgotten, not so forgotten and the unknown chapters of Delhi
They say that whoever bows his head to this grave meets an untimely death? Whose grave is this? And why does this grave emit that heady aroma? Who is this Sultan who rests in this grave and why is he called the Dracula of Mehrauli?
This 'Angrez' (slang for Britisher) was one of the most colourful figures of his time. Stationed as the Agent of the Empire in the court of the Emperor, this man lived an opulent life. He needled the Mughal Badshahs and the Begums and their Vazirs by having drunken parties in the tombs of high and mighty Mughals! Who was he? And how did he die?
Do you believe in Djinns? If you do, then be mindful of the attire you wear when you visit this tomb. There are spirits that may get attracted by your perfume that you are wearing so be mindful of that too!
