It is amazing how we keep driving past history every day without pausing to think! At least this is what had been happening to me till the time I went in for a guided tour of Purana Quila (Old Fort). The Zoo next door and the paddle boating in the lake around the Purana Quila (though the lake is drying... More

Purana quila is a place where you can taste the history (particularly the Mughal's time). The architecture and all, green gardens and trees. Foreigners would definitely enjoy it. I didn't know that there's also a small zoo in there lol. And most IMPORTANTLY, beware of the love markers behind the bushes :D :D

Nice historical fort worth spending some time. It traces its origin to Humayun. The complex is clean and well-maintained. There is a museum inside the fort premises. One can spend a couple of hours here. Located near the Delhi zoo. Recommended!

An old monument which has become famous predominantly because Humayun, the second Mughal Emperor, died over here by slipping over the stairs. Ought to be visited by history lovers.

Not many great sights to see but the local couples seem to enjoy hanging out all around the park and under the shade. The structures are old and doesn't seen to be maintained well. The grass and bushes are maintained though.

This place traces its origins to Sher Shah and Humayun. Archeological surveys also attribute this location to Indraprastha from the Mahabharatha. There is a beautiful Masjid that showcases the Mughal architecture, a stepwell and some ruins that are worth visiting. The place is quiet, well maintained will manicured lawns and can offer a good opportunity for picnics. The museum within... More
