  • Majority of the fort is ruin now. With proper maintenance it could have been preserved. Heart reports about insecurity, so beware while visiting. One time visit, nothing special.  more »
  • The area of the Fort is massive, a clear indication of walled city of the Tughluq era. But, there's nothing to see here for more than few of those ruined walls, stables etc. There's no control on monk...  more »

  • Amazingly beautiful.. U need a bit stamina to climb the fort.. And far away there is dump ground of delhi too .. so the breeze stinks a bit 😂 But great pictures.. One who likes monuments and all.. You'll love the place beside evrything else. Must go there once.
  • A fort which reminds of you of how culture loving India was at time of king Tughlak. Good place to hang out. Just be aware of the monkeys !!
  • Do Wear Shoes and Full Sleeve Shirt/T-Shirt and Jeans before going there. Beware of Couples...... HAHA!!!! & the Prong trees and plants also!!!! If you visit the fort, please explore it from every corner. I always get the better view whenever I tried to move further and further from one spot to find something interesting.
  • Historic and beautiful place where travellers can go and see our historic fort but it is advisable that people should go in a group specifically female should not go alone even in day time.
  • Awesome place . Go with your friends and family. Take lots of water with you as well as food. It is a type of khandahar. You really enjoyed it. You can go with you girlfriend or wife to spend some quality time with her. One more thing to visit in front of tugalkabad fort.

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.
