Photographer's Note

Legend has it that, the fort nestles on the ruins of the princely state of Indraprastha, the original city of Delhi. Today, every stone wholeheartedly sings the drama of blood and blade, enacted between two great dynasties of Indian history. Although the construction was started by Humayun, the Afgan ruler, Sher Shah - who briefly punctured the Mughal reign by defeating Humayun - completed it during his raj during 1538-45, before Humayun regained control of India. Interestingly, the fortress offers an impeccable blend of Mughal, Hindu and Afgan architecture, that creates an impressive sight.
