  • Absolutely worth a visit. Metro and tuc tuc and you are straight there, there's some 'climbing'/rough ground, so decent shoes called for.  more »
  • This fort is in one end of DELHI, talking about the history. One can spend 1-2 hours taking a round at this fort, which is more than enough. Kinda little deserted, but does give insight into the past....  more »

  • Tughlakabad fort is such a good place if you are a history lover and don't consider the ancient art as left over and stones only. It covers 6.3 km but much of the area is restricted . You can have a very beautiful view of Delhi and mainly Tughlakabad area from upper pavilions . And for solo travelers be a bit careful , its not as if it is a hub for criminal activities and there are guards also but still since the area is a bit deserted.
  • A really nice place to visit if you want to be around the historical architecture. The place is just some remains of the once magnificent tuglaqabad fort. And still is a great place to hang out with friends and family. Have some great time and some awesome clicks. The tomb accompanying the fort is much more cleaner and peaceful to be at. Enjoy your time there!
