The Palace Of A Thousand Pillars | Did you know that there’s a palace made with a thousand pillars in Delhi? Called Qasr-i-Hazar Sutun, this palace now lies in ruins but you can still see the strong pillars that were once its foundation. These walls of the palace have seen it all - love, hatred, treachery, war, bloodshed and so much more.
It’s commonly believed that this palace was erected by Muhammad bin Tughlaq, the then-Sultan of Delhi. You’ll find this place right outside the Siri For premises, so why don’t you go and check it out when it’s safe to step outside again? Keep your cameras at the ready, ‘cause you’d wanna capture every inch of this place!
