The fort originally lay on the bank of the river Yamuna before the river changed its course. The Purana Quila was built by Humayun in an attempt to build a city of his own. ... When Sher Shah defeated Humayun most of the structures inside...More

Purana Qila is a highly under rated monument of Delhi. I much prefer this to the Red Fort. Massive ruined ramparts from the Humayun era enclose an ancient citadel, one of the oldest of the many cities of Delhi. On going excavations have unearthed evidence...More

With Qila, baoli, mosque, tombs, garden, hammam (bathing place) etc, this site is truly amazing. Suitable for couples, friends, architecture lovers and whoever wants to spend their free time.

The area is still in the process of being reconstructed. Overall the lawn is well maintained but sadly is full of couples who fail to get a room!

A serene atmosphere with history running in every wall of the monuments. A nice place to spend an evening with kids and family. Normal timing is 7am to 5pm. A good picnic spot too with a very peaceful and beautiful environment.

This sound and light show is an example of a worst show ASI can produce. It's not a sound and light show, it's a multimedia show which is very badly maintained. The projector lights have dimmed down. The whole show is narrative so you don't...More

Well, to be honest I have never been there during NY weekend so it’s hard to comment. Though I must say that depending upon how cold & foggy it gets, it’s quite possible to be crowded.

Day trip to Agra from Delhi is possible both by train and car...in term of cost is going to be more or less the same....by car you will get less time for s/s and by Bhopal Shatabdi express for to and fro journey u will have 10-12 hours in Agra so it is better by train.....you can arrange transport inAgra by searching in the box above corner...or you can contact any Agra member /DE for the same.
