Tughlaqabad Fort in Delhi stretches across 6.5 km. It was built by Ghiyas-ud-din Tughlaq, the founder of Tughlaq dynasty, of the Delhi Sultanate of India in 1321. Tughalaq also built Qutub-Badarpur Road, which connected the new city to the Grand Trunk Road. The road now is known as Mehrauli-Badarpur Road. In 1321 AD, Ghazi Malik immediately started the construction of his fabled city, which he dreamt of as an impregnable, yet beautiful fort to keep away the Mongol marauders.
