GHIYATHU’D-DIN TUGHLUQ’S Tomb





This is a self built tomb with a mausoleum enclosed within high battered pentagonal stone walls, ,strengthened with bastions and looks like a small fortress. Initially it was surrounded by an artificial lake fed by the overflowing water of natural channels. It was connected with the Tughluqabad Fort by a path of stone which is presently intersected by the main road.
This monument was built during around AD 1322-1325 and still can challenge many monuments of India as far as architectural work is concern.

Turkman Gate, Old Delhi








Turkman Gate used to be the southern gate of the old walled city, Shahjahanabad. This southern gate was named after the devout Muslim saint, Hazrat Shah Turkman Bayabani. Turkman Gate was built during the period of 1650s. This is situated in the densely populated old Delhi near Ramlila Ground and next to Ram Sita Market. Like the other gates of Shahjahanabad, Turkman Gate is square in plan and having high arched openings. This gate is not well known among travelers and rather infamous for demolition and firing case happened during Emergency in India (1976). Many people lost their limbs and lives due to police firing during an agitation against demolitions of their houses near to Turkman Gate.
