Purana Qila, New Delhi

4.0
Take a walk along one of Delhi's oldest forts, Purana Qila. Built in the 16th century, the fortress used to house a village within its walls, before becoming a refugee camp for muslims who were fleeing to Pakistan. Today you can view numerous historic monuments inside the stronghold, including a mosque and a vibrant red library tower, and also visit the small archeology museum. Go boating on the moat that circles the fortress, or, if here in the evening, catch the multimedia history show.

  • The place is great especially on a good weather day. Not for summer days. Has a lot of history, most structures and lawns are well maintained. The Light n sound show needs to be booked beforehand from right outside the premises. The show is fun one time watch. All in all, nice place for family picnic.
  • Really a comfortable place to spend a day. Great place to Roam. Specifically for couples. The structures are well maintained and same.goes foe the Garden around. Also try the Museum inside. And also visit the high spots of the monument. Will give a Great view of the Delhi behind.
  • Historical place has lush green gardens to sprawl while the zoo beside it is also a good option to visit. Evening show is a good past time which gives a glimpse of history. Overall its good for past time with friends and family also to see India's great historical architecture.
  • Amazing place to go. But not during summers. Filled with couples and friends for the most part. Won't recommend a conservative family outing. Would ask the people to preserve historical monuments, as some had love letters written on them!
  • Nice place to visit. Best for peace lovers. Here you can find grass grounds and gardens. This place also have a historical museum a zoo. Great place for couples. Entry fee : 20 Foreigner : 200
