i have been paying visits to Purana Qila, since last 15 years. when i was young and fresh, two very vital things affected my mind, one is that Mr Lutyens aligned the Rajpath along the old fort as if to converge the old with the new. the second is that during the partition of 1947, thousands of migrating muslims swarmed...

Purana Qila's English translation tells you what to expect from a place whose name is Old Fort. It's one of the famous forts in Delhi adjoining a lovely boating lake, and Zoo. It's a good place to be on a nice clear afternoon preferably in winters.

The place where the Shah lived at some point. This place was built and rebuilt several times over a long time. There are archaeological digs showing human presence for centuries. But not much is left.

A very old fort of Delhi. Well maintained. Few well preserved structures inside the fort. Nicely sign posted with history and importance of each structure given.

Simply awesome !!! Been in Delhi for quite some time but finally got dragged for 'another' light and sound show by my daughter. How wrong my perception was....... This was the best Light and Sound show that I've witnessed till date. I won't write much about it - you have to see it to believe it. Certain points for consideration:... More
