BAOLI KNOWN AS DIVING WELL (MEHRAULI)
In and around Mehrauli lie a number of stepped wells ibaolis),but two baolis, better known than others, are
Gandhak-ki-baoli and Rajon-ki-bain. Gandhak ki-baoli, so called because of the smell of sulphur (Gandhak) in its water, is believed to have been built by Iltutmish (A.D. 1211-36). The other name of this five-tiered baoli is diving well because local youngsters jump into it from upper tiers.
