Recommendation by Lemi

Delhi’s third dynasty under the Delhi Sultanate, the Tughlaq Dynasty, founded a mighty citadel atop a hill. It was named Tughlakabad Fort after its founder, Sultan Ghiyath al-Din Tughlaq. The stone fortress was thought to be impregnable to invaders. However, as time has proven, weeds and monkeys have begun to reclaim the Tughlakabad Fort. Amidst the crumbling walls slowly giving way to shrubbery, its Ghiyath al-Din’s mausoleum is the sole structure that seems completely intact. Put on your explorer’s hat and trek through the rough terrain to Tughlaq’s majestic tomb! (Remember: beware of the cheeky monkeys!)
