About the walk

Gurugram Hub is collaborating with Soulful Safaris and our implementation partner Delhi Heritage Walk N Tale to organise the Feroz Shah Kotla Fortress Heritage Walk.

Firozabad, the fifth city of Delhi, was built by Feroz Shah Tughlaq in 1354, the first city here to be built on the river. Only the fortress remains, with crumbling walls protecting the Jama Masjid (Friday mosque), a baoli (step-well), and the pyramid-like Hawa Mahal, topped by a 13m-high sandstone Ashoka Pillar inscribed with 3rd-century-BC Buddhist edicts. There’s an otherworldly atmosphere to the ruins.

The Feroz Shah Kotla or Kotla was a fortress built by Sultan Feroz Shah Tughlaq to house his version of Delhi city called Ferozabad. Located between Old and New Delhi, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort was built in 1354 by Sultan Feroz Shah Tughlaq, when he was ruling the city from 1351 to 1384.

Now in ruins, the historic monument still stands as a memoir of Delhi’s history. Feroz Shah Kotla is one of the major archaeological clusters of Delhi. It is so vast and intricate that each of its individual structures demands special attention to its structure and stories around it.

*The proceeds collected from this walk will be used in organising a Heritage focused activities for sensitive community groups.
