The Old Fort or Purana Qila is a sixteenth century fort located in Old Delhi on the banks of Yamuna. It happens to be the oldest fort in Delhi; in fact, it is the oldest surviving fort in Delhi. It is said that the fort was initially built by the by Pandavas in the ancient of city of Indraprastha (Delhi) of the Mahabharata, on the banks of river Yamuna dating it back about 5000 years old. An excavation carried out the “Archaeological Survey of India” has confirmed its date back to at least 1000 B.C. The ruins of the fort as we see today were built by the second Mughal emperor Humayun during the 1530s. The red sandstone fort is an architectural marvel and a quintessential example of the Indo-Islamic architecture that flourished in India during the long reign of the Mughals. Inside the fort there is Qila-e-Kuhna Mosque, which stands apart from the rest of the fort because of its pre-Mughal architecture. The mosque was built five-six year after the construction of the fort.
