About Purana Qila

Purana Qila or Old Fort is the place from the stairs of which the second Mughal Emperor, Humayun toppled down and tumbled out of life. However, the two monuments that you see here today are built by Afghan leader Sher Shah Suri. Humayun has earlier lost his fortification to Sher Shah and had fled to Persia, returning years later. The Sher Mandal site is a quaint, two-storeyed and eight-sided building that was used as a library by Humayun. His Qila Kuhna Mosque is grand and beautiful too. The walls of this fort rise to 18 metres height and spread across an area of 1.5 kilometres. It has three main entrances namely Bada Darwaza, Humayun Gate and Talaqi Gate. All the gates are constructed using sandstone and surrounded by two semi-circular towers. The coloured marble embellishments and blue stone work on the towers present a fascinating sight. You get to see mesmerising balconies and pavilions near the South Gate of this attraction in Delhi. A light and sound show invite many tourists to this place in the evenings.
