Exploring the Tughluqabad Fort

Here’s our latest Heritage Walk film 🙂 It’s the mammoth TUGHLUQABAD FORT this time that we visited in Dec 2012. The film showcases in detail most of structures, ruins, etc that lie behind the gigantic walls of this fort and also the walk-leader discusses, in detail, the stories and history associated with the same.

Tughluqabad is a 14th century capital of Delhi (India). The remains of this massive complex stretch as far as the eye can see. It includes a royal tomb which once stood in a lake, palace buildings, dungeons and a secret escape route !

BON VOYAGE !! 🙂
