UGGAR SAIN’S BAOLI (CONNAUGHT PLACE)-
Measuring 60 m long north-south and 15 m wide at the ground level, and built with rubble and dressed stones, Ugrasen-ki-Baoli is one of the finest baolis in Delhi. A long flight of steps flanked by a thick wall with two series of arched niches, the lower ones deep and partly submerged under water, and the upper ones shallower and nearer the surface, make an impressive sight. Above the flight of steps on the west is a small mosque faced by three openings with a 'whale-back' roof, but its saffit supported on four pillars of sandstone, carved with chaitya motif and stucco medallions in spandrels, is a unique structure. The mosque, raised on a solid filling with underground dalans on the sides, formed part
of the entrance complex of the baoli, which has disappeared. The architectural features of the baoli indicate a late Tughluq or Lodi age.
