  • It is a good place to visit with family. It will give you a good historical touch. It is less crowded. You can enjoy a good time with your family and friends.Amazing place for visit with friends. But you can enjoy only if weather is good. And also not any service of water and food. Good place for photography.
  • Good place to visit for adventure. See closely underground old subway. This is ruined fort but have some security. Free parking. Entry ticket 15.00 ₹ each. Before going wear easy outfits and comfortable footwear.
  • If you want to take a trip to history then you must visit this place. This is truly a place where you can visit with your family unlike other places captured and crowded by #couples... A great place providing great view to capture and save in memory
  • An awesome place for a good trek or can say for a sort of trek experience! Abondoned and ruined sort of place but you can enjoy here! On the violet line of metro! A very vast place with High rise spots! The climbs can a bit risky! The tomb opposite to the fort is a nice spot for some rest
  • Its just an awesome place for a relief from the pollution and people of delhi. Its also a review of your history and you will enjoy the atmosphere here. Really good and curious place to discover about!
