Purana Qila's English translation tells you what to expect from a place whose name is Old Fort. It's one of the famous forts in Delhi adjoining a lovely boating lake, and Zoo. It's a good place to be on a nice clear afternoon preferably in winters.

The place where the Shah lived at some point. This place was built and rebuilt several times over a long time. There are archaeological digs showing human presence for centuries. But not much is left.

A very old fort of Delhi. Well maintained. Few well preserved structures inside the fort. Nicely sign posted with history and importance of each structure given.

Simply awesome !!! Been in Delhi for quite some time but finally got dragged for 'another' light and sound show by my daughter. How wrong my perception was....... This was the best Light and Sound show that I've witnessed till date. I won't write much about it - you have to see it to believe it. Certain points for consideration:... More

Purana qila or old fort is located near nizammudin and can be easily accessible via public transport... It is a place of historical importance and can be great destination for family picnic and historical learning.. Maintained nicely this place has a big garden where one can relax and chill out... Highly recommended...

One of the best historical monument but not well maintained. There is sound and light show (except on Friday’s), that can be seen . Has a great architecture. Unfortunately it looks like couple point.

The Purana Qila is worth a visit. Beautifully maintained and kept, you can easily spend couple of hours here. Relaxed atmosphere.
