Not many capital cities in the world could boast of such a huge amount of green cover as Delhi. In fact more than 296 sq.km - over 20% of the city - has forest or tree cover. There are several 'forests' right inside the city and one such is tucked neatly behind the poster boy of Delhi, the Qutb Minar.
Unknown to the constant stream of tourists visiting the Qutb, as the crowning glory of Delhi lies Lal Kot , the ruins of a fortress built around one thousand years ago.
Believed to have been built by Tomara Anangapala and further extended as Qila Rai Pithora by the Chauhana king Prithviraj III, the Lal Kot is believed to be the earliest of the proper settlements of Delhi.
