Apart from the thousand words I write everyday, I wrote a letter of 200 words approx. and addressed it to the djinns of this place. They visit the spot every Thursday, says popular opinion. Flowers, sugar, incense sticks and flour are offered as tokens.

Outside this beautiful place is a structure with a history, Khooni Darwaza, which is also the name for another gate at Dariba Kalan, Old Delhi. On Sept 22,1857, as a retaliation to the Sepoy Mutiny Major Hudson murdered Mirza Mughal, Mirza Khizr and Mirza Abu Bakr, the sons and grandson respectively, of the last Mughal emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar(AD 1837-57). They were stripped naked and beheaded. Out of the 3000 people who had gathered to watch the scene, there was none who protested. Hudson was surprised by this though the princes had put up a strong defence against him. It's said to be haunted and one of the spookiest places in Delhi. There were ravens and crows screeching when I visited the place, I had never seen something like that. Where you offer prayers is a deep underground cave with letters, flowers and candles. All the supernatural aspects to the architecture sound superficial but I saw people coming to thank the djinns when their wishes had been granted. How paradoxical, it's called haunted but then people have religious faith as well. The Khooni Darwaza is magnificent and the sad state of war ridden Delhi can be found in Ghalib's writings who spoke of the chaos during the revolt. A story of loss, chaos, separation and dilapidation.

I wrote the letter in Bengali.

Jami Masjid is one of the most ancient and largest surviving mosque and monument, still in use. Architecturally it was built on a series of underground celand made of quartzite stone, covered with lime stone. It is surrounded by a large courtyard with cloisters and a Prayer Hall. The Prayer Hall now in complete ruins, was once used by the Royal Ladies. The masjid and its architecture is an example of Tughluq architecture.

The entrance of Jama Masjid lies on the northern side. It is connected by a causeway to the pyramidal structure of the Ashokan Pillar. This mosque was visited by Sultan Timur in 1398 AD to say his prayers. He was spellbound by its beauty and constructed a mosque in Samarkand in Mawarannahr imitating the design of this Masjid. This mosque is also known to be the place where Imad ul Mulk, a Mughal Prime Minister, got the Emperor Alamgir II murdered in 1759 AD.

The #ferozshahkotla was built by Feroz Shah Tughlaq in 1354 and was the 5th city of delhi. It was built in a #polygon shape #yamunariver is on the east of the fort. The fort is mostly #ruined but is still visited by the #tourists . The walls of the fort, built as a #stone #masonary , are as high as 15m. Inside the #fort you will find a number of ruined #structures , of which the #mosque and the #baoli #stepwell are still recognizable. One thing that will draw your attention is the #ashokanpillar which stands tall on the top of a #pyramidal #architecture . The 13m high pillar, which was brought by Feroz Tughlaq from #ambala to #delhi ,bears the #edictsofashoka .

Starting today, UNIQUEDELHI brings you a picture daily of Delhi’s old, iconic trees, reminding people why the city needs its lungs more than ever before. This enormous, majestic Pilkhan tree stands tall amidst the ruins of Feroz Shah Kotla. A strangler fig with roots that bend backward to envelop the branches, this is one of the city’s most beautiful trees.
