An attraction for the lovers of history and nature-enthusiasts, Tughluqabad Fort provides insight into the history of the third city of Delhi. See the stronghold with the remnants of the walls on desolate hills, stretching for over 6 km (3.7 mi). Built in 1321 by Ghiyas-ud-din Tughlaq, the fort presented a massive stone fortification with sloping walls, parapets, and circular bastions. See the architectural style of Khalji still presenting itself from the ruins and the Ghiyathu'd-Din's tomb. Climb the fort and enjoy the sight from the walls. Stay alert for the monkeys.

  • its just old place make of concrete rock and the place is so large but there is nothing good thing to see. 
  • The fort and the city largely remained uninhabited because of a curse. It is vast with massive walls and is located some distance from the heart of the city, near the suburbs. 
  • The Fort of Tughluqabad though is in ruins still has walls as high as ten or fifteen meters with circular bastions. Was the Fort built in the fourteenth century at the time of the third city of Delhi. Beautiful stretches of walls you can admire along the Mehrauli-Badarpur but if you have time to stop there is also the mausoleum of the founder. A structure that I always like

  • Tughlkabad .BALMIKI MANLIR &72 .raju chindalya
  • Ya it's worth if u like historical places still things are there for taking pictures. Don't expect much ticket is Rs 5 which cover both tomb and opposite is grave of the ruler. Timing is from sunrise to sunset so plan accordingly to the season.
  • Mohd. Bin Tughlaq Empire.. A fort which is spread across 3-4km of radius with long fortified walls . But now it comes to its end. It's also a World Heritage Site. Archaeological Depart. OF India keep doing reconstruction work to save the heritage of Mohd. Bin Tughlaq..
  • It is the old remains of the Tuglakabad Fort situated on the road between South Delhi - Saket & Badarpur . This has been featured in a few Bollywood movies. It is no more a tourist attraction. Lonely stretch with mostly rurals and animals around. Feels insecure with family in evening or dark times. The view from the highest point of the fort with the lovely green landscape is a treat. If you're a history-buff, and have the time then Visit. Government of Delhi must do its bit to restore its lost glory to promote tourism at this site.
  • Beautiful fort but need serious attention to attract more tourists. Can be a crown jewel to the delhi attaction's list.
