  • Great place!. Firstly, this is your chance to be in retreat, that Indian attractions. Secondly, you can wander through the remains of the ancient city, its underground labyrinths (caution, many bats!) I liked it so much! The impression of a much deeper than from the world-famous attractions of India. From my heart I wish you visit Taglikabad and feel like a pioneer! PI. Es: take with a bunch of bananas to the monkeys.

  • 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 have a visit and see the old fort. Now it's not in a good condition not even in fair, but wear sports shoes when coming here, Very lovely scenario and full nature's essence, Fort built on a High altitude with Underground tunnels connecting the Fort with Tomb on the other side. Never come here single always come along with friends/friend, colleagues. Not a good place to come with family. Come casually !
  • Old asi structure. Could have been maintained better. The area felt to be as if far away from the urban cityscape of Delhi. And a wall separates all the greenery from the concrete jungle. Was a really pleasant experience to go there and feel fresh air.
  • It is a historical place. The fort is in ruins. It's not well maintained like Red Fort. We've found teens playing inside the fort compound. However, several structures are still intact. One may find good views for taking images in several places inside the fort.
  • A calm and quiet place. Probably the best place for a casual outing. The fort is not well-maintained though. But if you want to have a good photoshoot, that's the perfect place for you.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
