RUINED LINE OF WALLS, BASTIONS AND GATEWAYS OF SIRI, (SHAHPURJAT)-
Alaud-Din Khalji laid foundation ofSiri, Second City of Delhi, in A.H. 703 (A.D. 1303). According to the Zafornama, it was surrounded by a rubble wall and contained seven gates. The city wall is roughly oval on plan and has survived only in stretches, mostly on the south and west, with remains of some bastions. Loopholes for arrows and 'flame' shaped
battlements seem to have been introduced here for
the first time.
