I 1320 e.Kr., den første av Tughlaq-sultanene, bestilte Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq byggingen av et nytt fort som skulle være sete for administrasjonen for ham. Tughlaqabad, oppkalt etter ham, tok fire år å bygge, ikke lang tid, faktisk, gitt at det er så stort: grunnen er at Tughlaqs ikke var spesielt opptatt av den typen utsmykkede dekorasjoner som ble sett i (si) det røde fortet eller Purana Qila. Tughlaqabad ble bare okkupert kort, og deretter forlatt, og det er grunnen til at det nå er nesten fullstendig i ruiner. Det er noen halvt kollapsede bastioner å se, samt sporadiske buer, men de fleste bygningene er nå borte. Fra hovedporten, hvis du tar til høyre, kan du gå forbi en trebuet moské som en gang var den private moskeen for kongefamilien; og en markedsplass, som i dag fremstår som en tunnel gjennomboret her og der av overliggende innløp. Utenfor er en høy bastion som du kan klatre opp til for en fin utsikt over nærliggende områder, samt utsikt over Ghiyasuddin Tughlaqs hvite kuppelformede grav, over veien. Hvis du går til venstre fra hovedporten, går du forbi en fasade av buede vegger, til baoli (trinn - godt) bortenfor, fortsatt i god stand. Fordi Tughlaqabad ligger i ruiner, er det også ganske vilt. Det er mange apekatter, selvfølgelig (bær en pinne, for å være på den sikre siden), og vi så til og med en neelgai. Pluss mange fugler og sommerfugler. Billetter koster 20 Rs for indianere (hvis du betaler digitalt; 25 Rs hvis du betaler kontant), Rs 250 (digitalt og 300 hvis du betaler kontant) for utlendinger. Barn under 15 år kan komme inn gratis.

In 1320 CE, the first of the Tughlaq Sultans, Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq commissioned the building of a new fort that would be the seat of administration for him. Tughlaqabad, named after him, took four years to build, not a long time, actually, given that it’s so large: the reason being that the Tughlaqs were not especially keen on the sort of ornate decoration seen in (say) the Red Fort or Purana Qila.

Tughlaqabad was occupied only briefly, and then abandoned, which is why it is now almost completely in ruins. There are some half-collapsed bastions to be seen, as well as occasional arches, but most of the buildings are now gone. From the main gate, if you turn right, you can walk past a three-arched mosque that was once the private mosque for the royal family; and a market place, appearing today as a tunnel pierced here and there by overhead inlets. Beyond is a high bastion to which you can climb for a fine view across the nearby areas, as well as a view of Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq’s white-domed tomb, across the road.

If you go left from the main gate, you walk past a façade of arched walls, to the baoli (step-well) beyond, still in good condition.

Because Tughlaqabad is in ruins, it’s also quite wild. There are lots of monkeys, of course (carry a stick, to be on the safe side), and we even saw a neelgai. Plus, lots of birds and butterflies.

Tickets are Rs 20 for Indians (if you’re paying digitally; Rs 25 if you pay cash), Rs 250 (digitally, and 300 if cash) for foreigners. Children below 15 years of age can enter free of charge.

I visited this fort in recently in February 2023. It is in the care of Archeological Survey of India. Entry fee is Rs 25 for Indians, , includes both the fort and Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq tomb.
The fort is majestic and covers a huge area maybe half of which is demolished and now covered in forests and residential housing. It is surrounded by a now dried up moat. The outer walls are quite thick.
There are a lot of monkeys in the complex. There are also cows that are brought for grazing by the villagers. But i saw the monkeys bother and harass visitors inside the complex and i suggest the authority they should take steps to keep the monkeys away from the site .
Opposite the fort is the Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq tomb, formerly part of the same complex but now separated by a road.
It is one of the sute of other important sites of Delhi and therefore people interested in architecture and history should come and visit the site .
The ASI should take special care of this monument ,there needs urgent renovation and beautification work in the fort as well as the landscape should be maintain. Thank you
Best Regards

I visited this fort in October 2020. Ticketing was via mobile app only due to Covid restrictions. It is in the care of Archeological Survey of India. Entry fee is Rs 20 for Indians, 250 for foreigners, includes both the fort and Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq tomb. There is car parking outside.

The fort is majestic and covers a huge area of maybe 5-6 sq km, maybe half of which is demolished and now covered in forests and residential housing. It is surrounded by a now dried up moat. The outer walls are quite thick.

Still, the walls are majestic and the remaining buildings do give an idea of the huge fort. There are a number of buildings at higher and lower levels, including residential areas, kitchen, prisons etc. From one of the higher points in the fort, one can see the entire surrounding countryside.

There are a lot of monkeys in the complex. There are also cows that are brought for grazing by the villagers. But they dont bother humans anyway.

Opposite the fort is the Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq tomb, formerly part of the same complex but now separated by a road.

It is one of the 7 cities of Delhi and therefore a must see for people interested in architecture and history.

Driving past the ruins of once grandiose structure known as Tughlaqabad Fort, we decided to take a closer look.

Upon entering we realized the actual spread of the property, it was massive but falling apart in most places.

One can imagine, during its hay days this fort must have been a marvel of sorts, be it the architecture or the raw materials used, it has withstood the test of time since the 14th century.

A little unsafe though, as other patrons seemed locals, who kept a steady eye on our movement. Intimidated, we decided to cut short our venture and recede back to the parking.

If you're in a group, then a must visit, since it's not everyday one gets to see a fort or the ruins of it.

The ruins of the fort tell that the fort actually must have been a city in itself about 700 years back.In fact, 3rd of the 7 cities that Delhi is built around. Big area with ruined rubble masonry structures that will be much more interesting if you connect them with historical stories. Built by Ghiyasuddin Tughlak, founder of Tughlak dynasty in India around 1321, the city was not inhabited for long and was abandoned only after few years. There is a straight causeway to his tomb just across the Mehrauli-Badarpur road. Do wear a good sturdy pair of shoes as you would be walking on rough, uneven, stoney path with thorns that can hurt you. Better to buy online tickets as many times, the tickets would not be issued on the counter. Many local people come here just to enjoy, take selfies and have picnic sort of. But if you are a lover of archaeological sites and history buff, its a must visit site for you in Delhi. The only disappointment to you would be that Archaeological Survey of India has not done anything to educate you by placing information boards/placards at various sites. Sure they have placed one giving the layout of the Fort just at the entrance but its not of much help and difficult to correlate with the actual sites.

First time we tried to reach the place with a Uber but google maps lead the driver to a shady area on the wrong side of the fort so we thought we'd better desist. We then managed to reach via public transport, with bus 717A from Qtub Minar Metro station stopping at Tughlakabad.

The man at the ticket counter saw a foreign tourist coming decided the machine to pay via card was no longer working, so as to keep for himself the extra rupees one has to pay if paying in cash and not card. As we insisted we had no cash he discovered the machine miraculously started functioning again.

The fort is all ruins and forests, security warning against adventuring in the wilderness and offering their guidance and protection in exchange for tips. The Mausoleum of Ghiyat al-Din on the other side of the road, instead, is really well kept. I get the fascination for lonesome forgotten ruins, but unfortunately that brings great concerns for safety, especially in Delhi.

Absolutely worth a visit. Metro and tuc tuc and you are straight there, there's some 'climbing'/rough ground, so decent shoes called for.

This fort is in one end of DELHI, talking about the history. One can spend 1-2 hours taking a round at this fort, which is more than enough. Kinda little deserted, but does give insight into the past.
One good thing you don’t find people throwing stuff here or writing on walls.

Our Uber driver used navigation and had some trouble finding the place (though on a map it doesn't look too hard). Parenthetically, the Uber drivers in Delhi seem committed to their navigation systems, regardless of how irrational the directions are. I was traveling with a local friend who was puzzled more than once by the route. Back to the Fort - this is an old fort in various state of ruin. I find such things gorgeous and the pics on Trip Advisor are accurate to give you a sense. You can explore a little on your own, but when we were there security tended to accompany us. At first we thought they just wanted tips but after a few gave the same message it was clear their intentions were honest. A large portion of the grounds is open to a forest adjacent to a very poor village (no barriers between the grounds and the village). Security said that there have been instances of thieves coming out of the forest and robbing tourists at knifepoint and disappearing back into the forest. Security stayed with us the whole time. Never once felt unsafe and got to see much of what I wanted. But it was not quite the free exploration that I hoped for. It is a fantastic site and would be really fun to look around randomly. Some very high points from which to look over all of Delhi.
