About Tughlaqabad Fort

Tughlaqabad Fort emanates grandeur and its vast stone-scape hugging a rocky spread is highly evocative. Built by Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq in the early 1320s as a fort-city, it was made to ensure safety against Mongol attacks, which was always a threat in the 13th-14th century. For the construction of the fort, the king illegitimately brought workers from the Sufi saint Nizamuddin. Following this, the saint issued a curse that Tughlaqabad would not flourish or only be inhabited by shepherds. It was indeed the case as the place was abandoned in 1327. The vegetation-suppressed, crumbling yet magnificent ruins of this attraction is said to have a total of 52 gates out of which only 13 gates remain now. At the top of the huge walls are parapets and bastions. Scramble up on the grassy hillocks of the fort and imagine being the part of sentry looking for invaders. You will be surprised how far you can see. The tomb of Ghiyasuddin, built in 1325, is placed just opposite the main gate of the fort. You can reach here by hailing an autorickshaw from Tughalqabad metro station easily.
