This is the old fort ofDelhi and well worth a visit. There are extensive grounds and the remains of the mosque where Humayan fell to his death rushing to prayer. There is a lovely boating lake which was closed sadly

Overshadowed and overlooked by tourists who all flock to the Red Fort, which is a shame as this is an interesting place too. The carving and decoration at the mosque inside is beautiful and the stepwell is pretty impressive too. Nice interesting museum too, though...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.

There is a newly constructed moat, which is nice, it's a stroll alongside a lake. You could them club it with the sound and light show. The fort is magnificent. It's a fine itinerary for catching up with friends. Tip: club it with some snacks...More
