AGRASEN KI BAOLI: Hidden among the skyscrapers of Connaught Place, is the 60-metre long and 15-metre wide stepwell Agrasen Ki Baoli (on Hailey Road). Some of its parts are always immersed in water. The visible parts consist of three levels, lined with arched niches on both sides. Resembling Tughlaq period architectures, it was probably constructed by the Agrawal community (tracing back to Maharaja Agrasen).
This beautiful thousand-year-old stepwell, with the towers of Connaught Place in the background, will impress you. As you go down the steps to each of the five floors, you sink back in time, until all that seems real are the towering walls and the massive neem tree that shades it.
