TOMB OF ADAM KHAN (MEHRAULI) - Lying on the wall of Lal Kot and rising from a terrace enclosed by an octagonal wall provided with low towers at the corners, this tomb consists of a domed octagonal chamber in the Lodi style, with a verandah on each side pierced by three openings. It is popularly known as bhul-bhulaiyan (labyrinth). Adham Khan, son of Mahem Anga, a wet nurse of emperor Akbar, was a general in Akbar's army.
