Mehrauli, as described in various recorded chapters of Delhi history, is surely the oldest, continuously inhabited area of our glorious city of Delhi. Having been formed as a small fortified outpost of few villages, acting as the first line of defense against the Afghan & Mongol attackers in the late 8th century AD, it has seen the rise and fall of numerous dynasties & empires of Delhi.  Mehrauli is the site of a plethora of monuments, with historians claiming that nearly 250 buildings of architectural, historical & cultural importance dot this area.
