About The Bijay Mandal

Built during the Mughal dynasty, the Bijay Mandal was constructed by Allauddin Khilji and later maintained by Muhammad Bin Tughlaq. This complex fort was a part of the Jahanpanah, one of the four cities of Delhi Sultanate at that time. The structure of the fort has been constructed on a high platform, which then helped to spot enemies in a case of attack. But now, it offers an amazing view of the capital city. Step up on the octagonal pavilion to enjoy the lovely view or head to the shrine of the sufi saint Sheikh Hasan Tahir towards the Northern region of the fort.

What To Do Here?

Tourists looking for a breath of fresh air in Delhi (in the middle of all the pollution), the Bijay Mandal is a great place for a getaway. It provides an easy access as it’s within the city, and gives the tourist a chance to enjoy the bird’s eye view of Delhi’s greatest monuments – Qutub Minar and Lotus Temple.
