Brand New Lake at Purana Qila

The iconic lake which is in the stories of so many visitors at Purana Qila is ready to greet visitors again.

In the same complex there will be a state-of-the-art museum and interpretation centre with newly laid pathways and decorative lights, will be inaugurated on October 3, 2018.

However, boating facility at the lake, which was stopped in August 2016 is not started yet.

To dig out historical evidences related to pre-Mauryan period (3rd ceentury BC) excavations were conducted by the Archaeological Survey of India, making some part of the fort inaccessible to visitors. These inaccessible parts will b opened soon for general public.

The Archaeological Survey of India has discovered painted grey wares, antiquities and ancient coins, during th fresh excavation of last year.  In earlier excavations carried out at the fort by ASI, artifacts corresponding to Maurya, Shunga, Kushana, Rajput, Gupta, Sultanates and Mughal periods were recovered and are exhibited at the Archaeological Museum in the fort complex.

Visitors to Puranal Qila complex will have to pay Rs.20 as monument entry fee, which was previously free.
