Old Fort is the site of First Delhi called Indraprastha during Mahabharat time. Later, in ancient times, Chauhan Rajput built fortress here. Later on, Humayun and Sher Shah damaged it alot but rebuilt according to their requirements. Old Fort is an example of military fortification during medieval India.
