Day 1 : Delhi
Old Fort walk
One of the oldest forts in India, the Purana Qilla (Old Fort) was located on the banks of the River Yamuna before the River changed its course.This marvelous fort was constructed by the Mughal emperor Humayun – the Old Fort was the proud foundation, and beginning of the Mughal era of art and architecture in India. Now standing mostly in ruins, the Old Fort once served as the seat of power for a number of glorious emperors, including the Mughal Emperor Humayun, and Sher Shah Suri of the Sur Dynasty. Of all the surviving buildings in the old fort complex, the Sher Mandal and the Quila-I-kunha Mosque are notable, and add to the grandeur of the fort.
