Mahipalpur is an urban village, located in New Delhi district of Delhi, India. It is located near the Indira Gandhi International Airport. Delhi Aerocity metro station is the nearest metro station.[1][2]


The village dates back to the 11th century, and is named after a RajputTomar ruler named Mahipal. The area around the village has been inhabited since earlier. For example, the Sultan Ghari monument was built in around 10th century by Rajput pratihara dynasty.[3] During the 17th century people from the nearby malikpur migrated here and removed the local people.[citation needed]
