The Indians in the ancient times used to build water temples as well as earliest forms of step wells and reservoirs. Few exquisite examples of single-flight step wells still exist in Delhi today. The Agrasen Ki Baoli is one of the best preserved baolis of Delhi and the oldest. Aamir Khan’s PK drew attention to Agrasen Ki Baoli, which lay hidden for years among the high-rises near Connaught Place, New Delhi. But PK is only a blip in the long life of the grand baoli. The history it has witnessed and the mysteries hidden in its depths will never be truly revealed. This hidden tourist attraction is now often frequented by poets, artists, and photography enthusiasts. Walk down its elegant steps, explore its arched niches or just sit back and enjoy some quiet time in this bustling part of the city.
