Much less publicised but the place does deserve attention. A good place for walk and savour the lessons learnt in history book. Better go at sunset time. It remains open till 5.30 in the afternoon but gate closes at 5.

The fort is very old and is basically for any cultural events happens in evening or night. However there was boating as well. Due to less water it is no more a boating zone.

The Purana Qila Tour was nice. We enjoyed walking around the ancient ruins of the fort and it was surprisingly less crowded than what we had imagined it would be. Best to go when the weather is cooler and avoid weekends.
