Agrasen ki Baoli (Agrasen’s Baoli or Ugrasen ki Baoli) is a hidden historical and architectural gem hidden among the high rises of Connaught place in Delhi. The Baoli which is also seen as an ancient well to store water is situated in the heart of Delhi but is still known to the masses. The architectural marvel came to light only a few years back. The Agrasen ki Baoli is believed to be built during the ancient times of Mahabharata by Maharaja Agrasen who was supposed to be the ruler of the old town of Agroha, now present in modern day Haryana.

The design of the baoli is seen to be of the early medieval Delhi Sultanate era probably pointing towards late Tughlaq (1321-1414 AD) or Lodi (1451-1526 AD) architectural style. It is said that the baoli was repaired on a vast and extensive scale during the Delhi Sultanate period by the Agrawal community with the help of Muslim masons and that is why the architecture of the baoli resembles the early medieval era.
