Tughlaqabad Fort

Tughlaqabad Fort is one of the most beautiful fort although it has been one of the cursed one but the Gujjars restored its glory as per the Sufi Sant Aulia Nizammudin’s word which has remained all according to the Saintly words. If the personal thought is concerned the beauty of the fort is now in the remains which can be found scattered and also in rubble. The city has seen great development all around but thankfully has not played with their historical monuments but tried the best to restore it. It is located at the Highway of Mehrauli-Badarpur Road and has nearby ridge area which is also forested with the Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary and also the Dr. Karni Singh Shooting range in the vicinity for all those shooting enthusiasts.
