I wanted to test my Nikon D3100 & took it to the 'purana qila'. I was not dissappointed. The fort which is one of the oldest in Delhi was buit by the pandavas, now a protected monument site under ASI. There are few structures like sher mandal, qila-i-kuhna mosque which are intact or have been reinstored over the years, the rest of the fort & fort wall is in ruins which actually adds up to the heritage charm of the fort. The lawns are well maintained & being spring time, I could shoot the blooming garden. A few small eating joints are located outside the fort. A lake runs parallel to the fort which has boating facility & a zoo is located on the other side. A visit to purana qila could be a one day picnic for the whole family! Purana qila is easily accessible via road/metro- pragati maidan metro station is nearby. Entry fee- INR 5 (Indians), INR 100 (foreigners). Timings- check with Delhi tourism website.
