If you are coming north on the main road Anuvrat Marg, (Qutub Minar side), you will see signs (in Hindi only) for the small cut-off on the left for the Jain Dadabadi Temple, just outside the park. Make a turn in the lane, and not far away, on the left side is a nonfunctioning mosque, Madhi Masjid.

Inside the park (free entry) the first structure you'll come across is Balban's tomb (Balban ka makbara). Although undergoing restoration work when we visited, there were no restrictions to visit and the workers didn't seem to mind.

Balban began his career in the Sultanate after being bought as a slave by Sultan Iltutmish in 1233. He quickly rose through the ranks and had power in some capacity for about 40 years. A very hard worker, Balban was the de facto ruler during Sultan Mahmud's reign, who had no interest in governance. After Mahmud died, Balban was pronounced sultan.

Further ahead is one of the area's more popular and better maintained sights, the Tomb and Mosque of Jamali Kamali (Jamali Kamali ka Makbara aur Masjid).

|There must be enough visitors to make it worth their while to sell here.|
Still not crowded though, on the holiday when I visited.

|Interior of the mosque, definitely in need of some work!|
|The area is also home to some more, you guessed it, tombs|
