Presently the Mehrauli- Badarpur Road, it is a ruined fort that was once a dream of Emperor Ghiyas-ud-din- Tughlaq. He was the founder of the Tughlaq Dynasty and is known to have been a dictator by nature. It was his dream to set up a magnificent fort for himself but fate had something else in store. The fort was made for sure but the emperor could not enjoy his stay there. An old story says that when the fort was being made, the emperor had ordered all masons and workers to work only on this project and nowhere else. This forceful attitude was not liked by Nizamuddin Auliya, a Sufi saint of that time. He cursed the emperor that either the fort will remain unbuilt or will be inhabited by Gujjars. This is absolutely what happened as the Gujjars later took ownership of the fort and started living in that area. Another curse that is said to be the reason of death of the Emperor was when the saint said Dilli Bohut Door. At this time Tughlaq was elsewhere and while returning, his son conspired a murder of his father. The mausoleum of the Emperor is also built here now.
Amrik Sukhdev Dhaba
After having breakfast at Little Italy, we started our return journey to Delhi, bidding goodbye to the mighty Himalayas with a heavy heart and unforgettable memories of a crazy trip. The day was tiring but the level of excitement was not supposed to fade away so, at 12:00 midnight, we decided to take a break at the famous dhaba, Amrik Sukhdev at Murthal for dinner. Being a Mumbaikar, I have always found famous places crowded all night long in Mumbai but the crowd at this dhaba was crazy. I had never expected a place closer to Delhi to be so crowded at wee hours in the night. So, we quickly wrapped up our dinner and rushed to the airport as I had to catch flight at 3 am.Getting down at the airport was the most difficult part emotionally, as we were all going to be scattered again for an indefinite period of time. Bidding each other goodbye and making promises of meeting again, we all headed back to our respective cities.This travelogue was originally published on my website: nomadicmeteor.wordpress.com
