Fortresses bespeak the royal glory of the dynasties that held their reign and established their prowess, as  an empire to reckon with. One such dynasty that had held their fort in Delhi was the Tughaqs whose magnificent fortress is reminiscent of Delhi’s fierce battlement and period of transition. Explore and discover the city of Tughlaqabad as you walk through the ruins of the fort. You will crane your neck up the muscular walls of the fort that once declared the presence and prominence of the Tughlaqs.

The 2-hour guided walking tour of Tughlaqabad will start at around 7:00 am and the meeting point would be Tughlaqabad Fort Ticket Counter. The walk will take you through the rich history of the Tughlaq dynasty, whose founder Ghiyas-ud-din built the city of Tughlaqabad during the 14th century. Nestled in a picturesque landscape of lush vegetation and lakes, with numerous birds flocking in, the fortress is sure to bring out the shutterbug in you. Follow the gateway to take in the splendour of ruined palaces, well sides and courtyards, and let your guide do the talking. As you explore, you will learn that the fortress was within a span of four years and stands out as an architectural edifice and testimonial to the great builders the Tughlaqs were. The massive battlements and bastions of humongous stones would give you the feel of Colossus’s handwork. 

You will be in awe of the grandeur of the place reflecting on the lifestyle of the Tughlaqs, while delving deep into the history of their rise and fall. Walking through the annals of history will also reveal some of their secret sanctuaries, while the towers housing mosques, audience halls would still resound with the prayers of the royals and the subjects. The ruins will also be a reminder of how the Tughlaqs succumbed to the Mongols after repeated onslaughts. Legends have that the skulls of the Mongol marauders were used in the construction of the bastions or had pyramids built over them.

Echoes from the past will bound and rebound from these massive fortifications of Tughlaqabad and you will not want to miss out on a single snapshot of the vestiges of this great architecture!
