Tughlaqabad Fort is a ruined fort in Delhi, built by Ghiyas-ud-din Tughlaq, the founder of Tughlaq dynasty, of the Delhi Sultanate of India in 1321, as he established the third historic city of Delhi, which was later abandoned in 1327. It lends its name to the nearby Tughlaqabad residential-commercial area as well as the Tughlaqabad Institutional Area. Tughlaq also built Qutub-Badarpur Road, which connected the new city to the Grand Trunk Road. The road is now known as Mehrauli-Badarpur Road. The entry fee for the Fort is Rs. 20 for Indians. Also, nearby is Dr. Karni Singh Shooting Range and Okhla Industrial Area.
Surroundings are an important biodiversity area within the Northern Aravalli leopard wildlife corridor stretching from Sariska Tiger Reserve to Delhi. Historical place around sanctuary are Badkhal Lake (6 km northeast), 10th century ancient Surajkund reservoir and Anangpur Dam, Damdama Lake, Tughlaqabad Fort and Adilabad ruins (both in Delhi). It is contiguous to the seasonal waterfalls in Pali-Dhuaj-Kot villages of Faridabad, the sacred Mangar Bani and the Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary. There are several dozen lakes formed in the abandoned open pit mines in the forested hilly area of [[Delhi Ridge

It is a good place to visit with family. It will give you a good historical touch. It is less crowded. You can enjoy a good time with your family and friends.Amazing place for visit with friends. But you can enjoy only if weather is good. And also not any service of water and food. Good place for photography.

Good place to visit for adventure. See closely underground old subway. This is ruined fort but have some security. Free parking. Entry ticket 15.00 ₹ each. Before going wear easy outfits and comfortable footwear.

It's an awesome place to visit for sightseeing, though I'd say safety measures could be improved. And there weren't even any stalls inside for refreshments as might be quite exhausting exploring such a vast space.

If you want to take a trip to history then you must visit this place. This is truly a place where you can visit with your family unlike other places captured and crowded by #couples... A great place providing great view to capture and save in memory

An awesome place for a good trek or can say for a sort of trek experience! Abondoned and ruined sort of place but you can enjoy here! On the violet line of metro! A very vast place with High rise spots! The climbs can a bit risky! The tomb opposite to the fort is a nice spot for some rest

A must place to visit when coming to Delhi. Although the place is not that very much maintained, but you can have a good idea of what the thought process of Emperor of that era had. This fort was constructed to accommodate the complete city of Delhi with a periphery of 6.4 km. The massive wall, the lookout towers and the Boundary wall is something to see for. Carry water and snacks as nothing is available nearby. Bit of climbing large steps is required and no provision for wheelchair access.

What an experience! This is a hidden gem in Delhi. The ruins are so fun to explore, and there's next to no supervision so you can go wherever you please. There is a small entry fee for foreigners of Rs. 200, and Rs. 15 for Indians. There is a very neat (but smelling of guano) underground walkway, and also a hidden stepwell. My only complaints are 1. The monkeys, which you should stay far away from, and 2. The groups of boys that prowl the site. I would not recommend coming alone here as a female.

Wonderful place to visit with friends and family on holiday or any free day. The entrance of fort is very near to main road with adequate parking facility. Go there in loose outfits and proper shoes because I went there in my sandal and tore as the terrain is not plain but rocky. Entry fees is ₹15 each. But one thing to say is that there is no water snacks facility and also no toilets so better go with bag full of water. You would definitely enjoy the scenes from the fort.

Easily reachable as it falls on the main road. Still has very less visitor instead of its great historical significance. Most part of the fort is in ruinous state still most part of the forts can be easily identified. The best time to visit is in the morning.

Well maintained but few tourists despite historic importance. Lots of unruly local visitors with little respect for history frequent the place, and throng vantage places. From high positions, a very vast expanse is visible. A good visit as across road are several important and better maintained tombs

Tughlakabad fort is one of oldest forts in the city. It was made very long ago, during 1300 B.C. What is left today are the ruins of that fort. You must visit the fort during the day time to see the architecture masters people were during those times. Please be safe in and around the fort area, dont go near the village area, it is not so safe in that part. Otherwise the fort is very safe and security is very tight. You will also find little difficulty in getting autos around this place, plan accordingly.

Tughalkabad fort by name may seems a good place to visit, but there is nothing in there to spend time. Although if you're an athletic person and love to climb on rocks and do parkour a little then it is a good place. And also if you're a monument visiting enthusiast then also you will enjoy. The fort is not well maintained and people tress pass it very easily, but it is good to go by ticket which is ₹15.

This place is nice... But if you're looking to see some complete structure then it might be disappointing. On other side tickets are cheap because this fort is all messed up but climbing those left over part of fort you'll see a beautiful view & see that the fort has covered a major part of surrounded land that's amazing to see. Moreover I'd enjoyed there taking pictures but as everyone has different motives of visiting somewhere.

The fort is mostly in ruins, but its over a very large area and quite nice. Its never too crowded, the points of interest are also well marked for your reading & understanding. Its a really nice place to visit history. Loads of to see. Fortified walls, centeedes, stables, roof tops, high stairs! But only two bad things. No parking and half of the ford has broken walls so no security.
Abhishek Bajpai | Jun 18, 2018
Nice place for wondering. Here you can click some awesome pics. And also know about some history. This is good historical place.

200 INR pp, also allows access to nearby tomb. Some great views on the towers, very lush and green around site. Not baby stroller friendly Ticket also allows access to nearby tomb opposite the entrance. Some parking is available but very limited and on dirt path so care must be taken parking in wet season. Around the upper fort is an underground market and care must be taken walking nearby as there is large drops into the underground section.

TUGHLAKABAD FORT .... Yes good place to visit with Friends..... We enjoyed.. but only in winters or cool days not in summers... You will feel that you are not in city... You have gone 800 yrs back in fort... If you are fond of greenery and art, heritage, history.. it is good place for you... Cautions--- Don't wear uncomfortable shoes.. because it is horny,, and roads inside are full of latge stones.... Carry food items,,.there are only one two small shops outside.... Don't go alone.... Make trip with friends... Be cautious. Up and down hills like ruined structure.....
