Jasola Apollo (Hindi: जसोला अपोलो) is a Delhi Metro station in Delhi. It is located between Harkesh Nagar Okhla and Sarita Vihar stations on the Violet Line. The station was opened with the first section of the Line on 3 October 2010 in time for the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony on the same day.

This station is named to denote its vicinity to the nearby Jasola area and Indraprastha Apollo hospital. The station also houses several ATMs, food kiosks and a book store run by WHSmith.

The station is spread in a relatively big area and is connected to the Apollo hospital via a huge foot-over-bridge.

It is located on Mathura road. A nearby "kos-minar" (kos is an Indian unit of distance) belonging to Sher-shah suri sultanate is visible from the balcony of this station.[1]
