Even though in ruins today, the city of Tughlaqabad was once the might of Tughlaq dynasty. The fort was the part of the dream project of Ghiyas-ud-din Tughlaq (the founder of the Tughlaq dynasty) when he built the capital at Tughlaqabad (the third city of Delhi). However, its glory days did not last long and fell to the curse of Sufi Saint Hazrat Nizam-ud-din Auliya.
The walk takes you to the crumbling ruin of the Tughlaqabad Fort, 3rd City of Delhi; which gives a sense of lost grandeur & valor. The massive ramparts, battlements, and the mammoth stonework of this fort speak highly of the engineering skills of the workers who constructed it. The fort served the dual purpose of a defensive structure as well as the imperial capital of the Tughlaq dynasty. The fort is a formidable reminder of Delhi’s embattled past and the terror associated with that period, a period of political unrest and a number of attacks from Mongol invaders. The massive fortifications of Tughlaqabad, with immense circular bastions, were raised by Ghiyas-ud-din to protect its citizens from these invasions.
