This is one of the more curious sites in Delhi. Located in South Delhi near Sarvapriya Vihar, this walk covers the remains of the city of Jahanpanah, the capital city of Mohd Tughluq. The ruins today go by the name ‘Vijay Mandal’. This is also believed to be the site of Hazar Sutun or the hall of thousand pillars, the court of Mohd Tughluq. Begumpur Masjid is one of the least known but most stunning monuments in Delhi.
