The Baoli was constructed by Iltutmish in 12th century A.D. for the Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki. The Baoli is named after Qutb Sahib who had held high esteem and has been highly regarded for centuries, as he was the disciple and spiritual successor of Khwaja Mu’inu’d Din Chishti of Ajmer. The dargah has many other structures like the assembly house, robe chamber, mosque, drum house tanks and several imposing gates.
The Baoli is accessed through the wuzu area of the Dargah leading to an open terrace. There are graves located on this level from where the steps lead to the lower level to access the Baoli.
The Baoli covers an approximate area of 377 sqm and a depth of about 23m. It is constructed of the quartzite stones with lime mortar.
