Firoz Shah Kotla

 Firoz Shah Kotla Yet another beautiful ruin which has survived the course of time is Firoz Shah Kotla monument. Though Firoz Shah Kotla stadium is known among people but only a few and scattered people have heard about this monument. The Fort at Firoz Shah Kotla was constructed by Firoz Shah Tuglaq in 1300 s. Like few many other ruins of Delhi, this is lying there unnoticed. Exhibiting a large enclosure of high walls, Firoz Shah Kotla was grand and an opulent royal citadel of this city. However, unfortunately today majority of its beauty is vanished. It houses Pillared halls, Palaces, a Pigeon tower and a stepped well; few of which are still in good condition. The interesting thing about this monument is that few people still light up incense sticks and candles here and consider it as the abode of spirits.

Tomb Of Adham Khan

42847_9828Adham Khan was the son of Akbar’s foster mother. While he was dear to the emperor, he had his wrath on murdering of Akbar’s Prime Minister. He was buried in his own Adham Khan Tomb which was constructed by emperor Akbar in 1561. Another reminder of Mughal’s gallantry and barbarism, Tomb of Adham Khan stands tall in Mehrauli. It has a tomb on its upper corridor and you can get lost easily here and that is why it is called ‘Bhool Bhulaiya’ in Hindi. Some historians are also of the view that there is some secret tunnel inside it which runs straight till Agra.

Tughlaqabad Fort

 Tughlaqabad FortLying in the state of being isolated, Tughlaqabad Fort is in now in a deplorable condition. This Fort was built by the founder of Tughlaq dynasty. It is spread over a vast area and is certainly a piece of architectural geniuses! Also, its architectural beauty is well defined in William Dalrymple’s(a famous travel writer) book.

Safdarjung Fort

safdarjung_tomb_delhiSafdarjung Fort’s architecture is somewhat similar to the Humayun’s Tomb! Known to be the ‘ Last flicker in lamp of Mughal architecture’, this monuments is not frequented by significant number of tourists as most of them don’t even know about it. Completed in 1754, this magnificent monument is a memorial of Mirza Safdarjung. Situated in the Western end of Lodhi Road, this fort is certainly lying unnoticed there.

Khirki Masjid, Saket
