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.
