Situated to the East of the tomb of Nasiruddin Mahmud (Sultan Ghari), off the Mehrauli Mahipalpur Road, the ruins of these residences date back to the late Mughal period of the 17th – 18th centuries, thus making them the oldest surviving specimens of residential architecture in Delhi.
The complex comprises of around ten two storied dwelling units, but in almost all cases, the upper stories have collapsed. Vestiges of the vaulted roofs and staircases are visible through the thick foliage that has grown all over. An ASI plaque mentions that this site was abandoned in the 19th century due to lack of water.
