I still looked around and found one – Tughlakabad Fort. It is all in ruins now though. This also gives me opportunity to peek back in time and understand a bit of history.
This fort was built in 1321 AD by Ghazi Malik who was feudatory of his masters – Khalji the then Delhi ruler. Ghazi Malik one fine day drove away the Khaljis and assumed the kingship, gave himself a title of Ghiyas Ud din Tughlaq and built the fort. He is the founder of Tughlaq dynasty. Infamous Muhammad bin Tughlaq was his son.
However this fort had to be abandoned in 1327. Legend says a sufi sant cursed the king.
Anyway it is interesting to read the history but then gets smudgy somewhere. The pictures below tries to take us back in history.
The place is about 22 km from Gurgaon in state of Delhi, south of Delhi in Mehruli area. Entry fee is Rs.15 for Indian. Fee would be much more for foreign visitors. (May be Rs200/- I guess) No board. The place is open from 0700 hr to 1700 hrs.
The guard over there will customarily enquire you whether you have any video cameras. You can not avoid saying a lie, since you invariably carry your mobile if not a high end camera. I want to believe that he was enquiring whether you are carrying a real video camera on tripod etc.
Free parking is available.
I suggest the authorities to ban the plastic, eatables in side the fort. visitors carry eatables and throw the wrappers.
