Purana Quila

Akbar did not construct the Purana Qila. This is the oldest fort in India. This fort was constructed by the Afgan king Sher Shah Suri. This Quila is situated in New Delhi and is said to guard the ruins of the city of Indraprastha that is mentioned in the Mahabharata.  This fort has three main entrances.

  • The Humayun Darwaza
  • The Bara Darwaza
  • The Talaqi Darwaza

It is believed that Sher Shah left the Purana-Quila unfinished and completed by Humayun. Purana Quila originally lay on the bank of the Yamuna.
