I got the chance to visit this land of history when my wife visited her parents for 2 weeks and I was free to roam around on the weekends.
Tughlaqabad is an often-heard name because of the railways’ engines that were manufactured there though I never came to know where the factory is located.
But anyway, here I was, checking the fortified piece of land that once inhabited a considerable population around 700 years ago.
The whole area seems to be a deserted place now but it has certain points which are unique to it.
The step-well, for example, has a square cross section instead of usual rectangular shape and having a cylindrically shaped well at the back.
There is an underpass which has rooms located on both the sides.
The area itself is huge and you will feel tired if you decide to check every nook and corner of this fort.
I feel that somebody can try to open an eating joint outside the fort because there is hardly anything available to eat or drink outside. On weekdays, around 100 people visit the fort while on weekends and holidays, this may well go up to 700 people. So, the potential is there but till now, there is almost no shop where you can sit and relax after you have ventured into all areas of this fort.
The fort has a tomb also which is on the other side of the road. The ticket is of 5 INR and is valid to visit both the sides.
Overall, if you are a history buff and really enjoy eating dust, you should visit this place.
I am presenting some photos that will help you get the feel of the place.
