  • This boali or water storage is located within the Nizamuddin Dargah complex itself and is said to be almost about a century old.  more »
  • A very large artificial pond in comparison with similar. The peak of construction of such installations falls on the 14 century. This is no exception. Built on the initiative of the Muslim Saint of Nizami. Now the water is not suitable for drinking.

  • Nizamuddin_Ki_Baoli (Step well of Sufi Saint Hazrat Nizamuddin) हजरत निजामुद्दीन बावली दिल्ली में छोड़े गए कुछ इतिहासिक धरोहर में से एक है और यह दिल्ली के एक सक्रिय पर्यटन स्थल में से एक है। यह एक कुआ हैं जिसमें पानी तक सीढियों से उतरकर पहुंच जाता है। यह प्रसिद्ध हजरत निजामुद्दीन औलिया की दरगाह के प्रवेश द्वार पर स्थित है और पास भी प्रसिद्ध कवि अमीर खुसरो की दरगाह है। यह बावली 800 वर्ष पूर्व हजरत निजामुद्दीन औलिया ने स्वयं वर्ष 1321-22 में बनाया था। यह 160 फीट गहरा है, जो 14वीं शताब्दी की वास्तुकला और छोटे मंजिला घरों से घिरा है।यह बावली दिल्ली में सबसे बड़ी और दिल्ली में बावली है जो लगभग 800 वर्षों में कभी इसका पानी सूखा नहीं। The Hazrat Nizamuddin Baoli is one of the few step wells left in Delhi. It is located at the entrance of the famous Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya’s Dargah and also nearby is the renowned poet Amir Khusrao’s Dargah. This baoli was constructed over 800 years ago by Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya himself in the year 1321-22. It is over 160 feet deep, surrounded by the typical 14th-century architecture, and small storeyed houses. The baoli is the largest in Delhi and the only step-well in Delhi that has never dried up in about 800 years. 2009 में निजामुद्दीन बावली में संरक्षण कार्य का कार्य शुरू हुआ, इस बावली को सैकड़ों वर्षों में पहली बार साफ हो किया गया था। बड़ी मात्रा में अपशिष्ट और गंदे मलबे को सफाई करने के बाद, बावली के कई ढह गए हिस्सों को फिर से बनाया गया था। The baoli, though rectangular in outward appearance, has a stepped circular tank at its centre, with a depth of about 80 feet below the ground level. Its steps lead down into the water tank that is fed by underground streams. A marbled floor, from the dargah or tomb shrine, where qawwalis (musical performances) are played, leads to this stepwell. In 2009, when conservation work at the Nizamuddin Baoli started in full swing, it was cleaned for the first time in hundreds of years. After cleaning large amounts of waste and silted debris, several collapsed portions of the baoli were rebuilt. Today, this baoli is a protected monument under the Archaeological Survey of India and its conservation is taking place as part of the 'Humayun's Tomb-Sunder Nursery-Hazrat Nizamuddin Basti Urban Renewal project' under the Aga Khan Trust for Culture
