Did you know that many people think that the Tomb of Balban is haunted? They also think that the Tomb of Jamali Kamali is also haunted!

Balban was one of the Sultans of Delhi and lived more than 800 years back.

Nobody knows who built Jamali Kamali. Some people guess that this building was made in the 1500s.

Just a narrow road divides the Jamali Kamali complex and Balban’s Tomb. Just cross this road and you do a little bit of time travel.

Thomas Metcalfe was a British official who worked in the court of the Mughal King, Bahadur Shah Zafar.

He was an interesting personality.
