Standing next to the famous Ferozshah Kotla Stadium, the fifth city of Delhi, Ferozshah Kotla fort today exists in isolation. Strategically built across R Yamuna, the fort was the royal citadel of Emperor Ferozshah Tughlaq built in the 14th century CE. It saw a number of plunders and most its materials were looted and utilised in the making of the Dinpanah and shahjahanabad citadel. The ruined structures of the fort have been long forgotten but the fort still attracts a huge number of people because of its mysterious demeanour.
Walk through the amusing fort at your pace. Witness the “Minar-e-Zareen”, a highly polished Ashokan sandstone pillar that was shifted from Ambala to Ferozshsh Kotla, Jami Masjid the oldest and largest mosque of the medieval times, baolis, cells etc. while you traverse through the ruined citadel. Get startled by the innumerable letters, coins, milk, sweets, fruits and meat offerings made by the devotees to the djinns of Ferozshah Kotla. You might want to find logical explanations to these but let me advice you, do not engage into this futile expedition. Rather amaze yourself with this unusual spirituality and devotion. See people abandon the usual religious practices and resort to a mystical one for fulfilling their desires. Celebrate this strange yet exquisite belief at Ferozshah Kotla.
