About the site
Ghiyas ud-Din Tughlaq – the founder of the Tughlaq Dynasty, built what is popularly known as the Fort of Tughlaqabad today. On the Badarpur-Mehrauli Road in Southern Delhi, you can see the ruins rise as you turn your eyes east from the shooting-ranges located in the proximity. Famous today for its tours as a result of being the fifth of the ‘eight ancient or historical cities of Delhi’, it is also an architectural marvel relatively well-preserved since the medieval era, mostly by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). It is marked by its lush greenery and vegetation, as it is flanked by the Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary.
The premises are surrounded by tall, slightly slanting, walls made of sandstone, quartzite rubble, and limestone mortar, which run along the perimeter. 15 metres in height, these walls are also crowned with 2-metre high bastions, ramparts, and battle parapets. This fort-city of Tughlaqabad was also believed to have fifty-two grand gates, out of which only thirteen remain today.
