Ruin
An attraction for the lovers of history and nature-enthusiasts, Tughluqabad Fort provides insight into the history of the third city of Delhi.

  • Without a walled city built in Delhi to protect from attack from Mongolia is almost used and abandoned. Look at not becoming tourist site, under the guidance of the guards striking range, around. I watched the splinter of earthenware, Royal Palace and mosque. Castle has large agricultural terraced pond, I was surprised with its size it is. Castle was done with the grazing of goats and cattle. Scale the ramparts is magnificent.

  • Away from the city centre, without being far away, this fort from the 14th century which is spread over a very large area, certainly in ruins, to get an idea of what was being built at the time. With walls as thick as those of the castles of the West at the same time. Note, two baolis (well-tanks) one in ruins, the better preserved.

  • This is quiet peaceful fort. But as such, nothing is there. Only a big land surrounded by wall. But yeah, you must wonder by it's size. you can get a full view of the city if you go up on the fort. Nice place to visit.
  • The first time i visited this place i was pissed off at ASI for not maintaining this fort while Adilabad across the road was better maintained and the Ghiazuddin tomb is picture perfect. Later i realized that its impossible to maintain this huge place. Much of the fort is not accessible. Read about the place before visiting to know what is left of a grand city ruled by a 'crazy' emperor, like the underground rooms etc. Maybe this fort is set to prove that its 'cursed' (read up on its interesting history). It's probably the largest of the historical cities of Delhi with a brilliant view of the urban monstrosity called Delhi in which we live today. One could see the lotus temple with naked eyes, except that you ll have to ignore the filthy urban slums in between. Safety is definitely a concern as it is popular among addicts. Easily accessible from Faridabad, Gurgaon & Delhi, you should visit the Ghiazuddin Tomb, Adilabad & Asola Bird Sanctuary across the road. A paltry ₹15 is the entry for Indians and ₹100 (i guess) for foreigners. Have fun, keep travelling, keep learning :)
  • Very poorly managed historical monument of Delhi, security guards are there to add panic of trouble for the visitors. As per advice of posted sentries antisocial elements hiding here and there to harass visiting tourists. Take care especially if you are in company with females in the group. Sad to add sorry state of ASI managed historical Fort.
  • Beautiful fort but not well managed. you have to pay 30 rupees as a entry fee.It's good for photography location this place is less clouded so, you can easily takes photos here. but there seems some negativity on security part you rear find security guards here .i recommend you come here as a group and try to not come with females,this is Not a good place for girls.
  • Quite gud for personal who love visiting fort is destroyed but still makes gud looks On the fort if you found any buffalo 🐃 then don't panic they also are tourist.
