A city that was

Posted by Chetan (Gurgaon, India) on 26 April 2017 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Feroz Shah Kotla is located near Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg in between New Delhi and Old Delhi. In 1354, Sultan Feroz Shah Tughlaq established Ferozabad and Feroz Shah. Kotla is the core of that extensive city. Historian Shams Siraj Afif, who lived during Feroz Shah's reign, described the city as very well and distantly established. In the north the buildings of the city stretched from Northern Ridge ( today known as Pir Ghaib). To the south the city extended to the site now marked by the Purana Qila or Old Fort. According to him the population of the city at that was around 1,50,000.

Life is so full of happenings, that we hardly notice as worthy.
Here is my attempt to share those moments.
