Rajon-ki-Bain and Mosque

Rajon-ki-Bain and Mosque
Located just behind the local bus station, about 400 meters away from Gandhak-ki-baoli in the Archaeological Survey of India Park are the Rajon-ki-Bain and Mosque. These Lodi era monuments are in state of serious neglect with massive outgrowth of wild vegetation in and around the structures.

Rajon-ki-Bain is another four-tiered stepped well much larger than Gandhak-ki-baoli. The well derives its name from the fact that the particularly masons (raj) of the area used it. However, at present, this well has also dried up.

Adjacent to Rajon-ki-Bain is a mosque that is connected to the well with a flight of steps. The mosque has a chhatri that has an inscription, which records that it was built during the reign of the ruler Sikander Lodi (1489-1517).

It is advisable not to visit the monuments alone, as it is located in a secluded and neglected park. However, it will be a fruitful visit for those interested in baolis or step wells and the architectural history of Delhi
