Visit Tughlaqabad Fort, A Lesser Known Monument Built During The Tughlaq Dynasty Way Back In 1321

What Makes It Awesome

While the journey to Tughlakabad Fort is quite tiring and so is the walk up to the highest point, but it is all worth it as it offers a breathtaking view of the capital. One can see the Lotus Temple right at the horizon {yes, you can actually see the horizon for once!}. The fort is spread over a vast expanse and is mostly in ruins. Built to protect the city from Mongol invaders, this fort was an idea by Ghiyas-ud-din Tughlaq. The amount of greenery one will find there is a great change from the buildings and concrete on the rest of Delhi. There are a number of different looking structures with arches and even an underground tunnel of sorts.

What Could Be Better?

The fact that it is isolated is both a boon and a matter of concern at the same time. If solitude is what you're looking for then this is the place to go. Even though there are a number of people, the vastness of the fort makes a person still feel like they're in a different world.

What's My Pro Tip?

Wear good shoes to make walking up and down the slopes and rocky paths easier. I suggest going when the sun isn't too strong, as that will be the best time to really enjoy the whole vastness without worrying about dehydrating or getting a heatstroke!

Anything Else?

The best way to reach there is by taking an auto for around INR 80 from Govindpuri metro station.
