Popular place for tourists in the heart of Delhi .You might have seen this place in many Bollywood movies .It is called Ugrasen ki Boali.

Ugrasen ki Boali also known as Agrasen ki Baoli  was designated a protected monument by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act of 1958.

 Although there are no known historical records to prove who built Agrasen ki Baoli, it is believed that it was originally built by the legendary king Agrasen, and the present architecture hints at it being rebuilt in the 13-14th century during the Tughlag period of Delhi Sultanate.
