Our tuktuk driver brought us here. The place is famous among locals. There's nothing really great downstairs since it's filled with trash. Maybe a 3 minute stay for photo-op is enough.

This counts as one of the haunted places in India but there's nothing anything called or anything like haunted. Good place for photography but avoid it in case you want to visit a sight seeing place.

The structure is amazing bt it doesn't lie in large areas like that of a fort. It is the best place to relax away from city chaos. Is good for all like family couples and for herd of friends. It is hardly 1km from connaught place.

It's a place of interest in tourist maps and onboard flight magazine but you're unlikely to stumble on it by wandering around. We took an Uber to get dropped off right outside. It wasn't too crowded. We weren't harassed by anybody. Go early in the morning or towards evening for ambience/lighting.

This Baoli (Stepwell) is close to Connaught Place and is a true gem in Delhi. It can be combined with a visit to the Jantar Mantar and the Gurudwara Bangla Sanhib for a great morning or afternoon, highly recommended!

Situated on Hailey Road, amidst the urban setting of Connaught Place, one of the main CBD of Delhi, Agrasen ki Baoli is ideal to visit during the late morning or afternoon hours.

There are many stepwells all over India, some which are entitled to the world heritage. Stepwells used to be essential to life in the driest parts of India. Indian people developed a... More

If you can see passed the 100's of people only interested in taking selfies then it's well worth a visit. An interesting place to spend an hour or so.
