Historically the site of this fort believed to be ancient city Indraprastha of Mahabharat era hence this fort went under many excavations for searching a decisive evidence. though age has proved an important hurdle for the preservation of the fort but still Qila-i-kuhna masjid is there to reflect the mogul architectural excellence.
