Structure of Mahal

There are a 2.5 feet low height wall outside of historic sites for resting. Don’t confirm that, it was made earlier or made by Delhi Tourism.

This monument has twin gate entry from the north-east side. Let’s enter in Bhuli Bhatyari ka Mahal. We enter it through Metal Gate of the height of around 14-18 feet. There is a small zone where around 20 people maximum can gather. After that, there is another huge open gate. After crossing it we found a large rectangular courtyard with many trees in it.

There is a platform on one side of the courtyard and near the main gate. There are stairs at one side of the courtyard. Which goes to the roof of the mahal. From there we can see all the lawn on one side and can watch adjacent forests on the other side.

Why the name of “Bhooli Bhatiyari”?

There are two theories behind this title. One theory suggests that this place, after the Tughlaq Dynasty, became an abode of a Sufi saint named ‘Bu Ali Bakhtiyari’. One day this saint got disappeared mysteriously and later on Bhooli Bhatiyari is simply a distorted form of his name ‘Bu Ali Bakhtiyari’.

The other theory suggests that there was a Bhatiyarin (a tribal lady from Rajasthan), They were a nomad and traveled in groups and maybe she forgot her way back and ended up here. After her, the place became famous as ‘Bhooli Bhatiyari’.
