4. Agrasen ki baoli
This one is also located in old Delhi, all the monuments are nearby not at much far distance. Agrasen ki baoli is a stair-like structure of old architecture. There are a total of 108 steps in baoli and ends up at a well.
So here is an interesting story about baoli, it is said it was built at the time of mahabharta, but there is no strong evidence about it and it is said t was rebuilt in the 14th century. It is said that the black water was present in the stepwell which hypnotizes the people to commit suicide, now, it is dry and there is no water, and no suicide update so far, but people say the baoli is haunted. This could be a theory because a lot of people died at this place. There are stories of hearing voices. This is the reason no one can enter baoli after 5:30 in the evening at the day time it is mostly crowded by the tourist. But like all the other haunted stories, this one is also different for everyone, does who have heard the voices believe in this, and those who didn’t do not believe in this.
5. Gurudwara Shri Bangla Sahib
Moving on to Gurudwara Shri Bangla Sahib. It is open all 24 hours, this is not considered as a monument, as this place is still active and Sangat is regularly active with angar being served the whole day long, but the place is so attractive that, I cannot complete the list without mentioning Bangla sahib in this list as this is the attraction for most of the tourists.
6. Qutub Minar
Qutub Minar which looks like a 5-floor tall pillar kind of structure, which was earlier 7 and was at a great height but at the night time a plane crashed on it and it was reduced to 5 floored building it is yet a tall pillar kind of building. Most people love to visit this place.
