Tughlaqabad Fort - Panoramic View

"Tughlaqabad is the most uncompromisingly militaristic ruin in Delhi, perhaps in all India." Willaiam Dalrymple, City of Djinns

 

Tughlaqabad, the third city of Delhi, was built by Ghiyath al-Din Tughlaq, the founder of Tughlaq dynasty in 1321.

 

Although in ruins, Tughluqabad still consists of remarkable, massive stone fortifications that surround the irregular ground plan of the city.
