Haus i Shamsi Tank

Monument in Greater Delhi & Gurgaon (Gurugram)

This 12th-century reservoir was formerly larger. The pavilion at its edge was once in the middle, and supposed to cover the hoofprint of a horse, ridden by the Prophet, who appeared to Iltutmish of the Slave Dynasty in a dream and instructed him where to built the tank. The Jahaz Mahal, a 15th-century palace, overlooks it.
