5Neeraj C. 1 year agoFiroj shah ka mahal (हिसार-ए-फिरोज़ा, Hisar-e-Firoza) is located in the city of Hisar in Haryana, India. It was built by Firuz Shah Tughlaq in 1354 AD. The original town of Hisar was a walled settlement inside the fort with four gates, Delhi gate, Mori gate, Nagauri Gate and Talaqi Gate. The palace consists of a mosque known as Lat ki Masjid. Lat is a sandstone pillar about 20 feet high and was earlier an Ashokan pillar.

You guys can visit here easily, this complex is just opposite of Hisar bus stand. There is no fee charges but doesn't meant there is no rules. You have to go thing according to the department head of the complex. This is good place for students of Architecture. Thank you. ❤ AK
5Vishal B. 4 years agoLiked thoroughly my time here. Definitely a crown of the city of Hisar. Can spend at least 30 mins - 1 hour exploring the labyrinths of the compound. Kids will surely love to explore and be allowed to do so. Palace complex has been renovated and much better preserved now. A must go if you are visiting Hisar.
5Muhammad Hassan T. 5 years agoTughlaq Tombs in the Indian subcontinent are mostly simple, monotonous and heavy structures in Indo-Islamic architecture built during the Tughlaq dynasty (1320–1413). They look more like fortresses with walls surrounding them and have restrained decoration and embellishment compared to both earlier and later Indian Islamic tombs. Their architecture lacks the influence from Hindu temple architecture and craftsmanship which was later found in Lodi and Mughal architecture. But Hindu influence on Tughluq buildings was not totally absent. Features of Hindu influences on Tughluq architecture include the flat lintel instead of pointed arch, pillars, windows with balconies and eaves and railings. Tughluqs built three main types of tombs: square, octagonal and pavilion. The last type was the simplest, consisting of a pavilion or a chhatri. The simple tombs are most likely to be those of nobles and family members of the sultans. Firoz Shah Tughluq has contributed to architecture in a similar manner as Shah Jahan did years later. However, Firoz's buildings were of simpler designs than those built earlier by the Khaljis. The coffers of the Treasury were almost empty when Firoz Shah took over. This meant he had to use simple design and cheap materials such as rubble and whitewashed plaster instead of the stone and marble combination. A few tombs built by Firoz shah are rarely ever mentioned as his name is more associated with town like Feroz Shah Kotla. Yet the remains of the three tombs built by him in Delhi are still visible. These are: Fateh Khan's tomb, Firoz Shah's tomb, and the tomb of Khan-i-Jahan Tilangani.
5Vijay B. 4 years agoA nice place to visit if you have an hour or 2 to spend. Do Google for this places history and facts. There is no guide available here. Entry is free.
4Jayant J. 2 years agoLocated just infront of hisar bus stand Firoz shah palce is peaceful and lovely place.Though it is clean but it needs renovation.This place includes prison and "Lat ki masjid" which was build by Firoz shah tuglak( Sultan of Delhi (1351-88)).A must visit place also entry is free of cost.
4Dev B. 1 year agoStaff is just good. Not too good
4B V R S S. 4 years agoThe board at the entrance provides an introduction to the visitors.. The visiting needs no payment of money (may be for now).. Rather than just roaming above, it's better to follow downstairs leading inside the palace to actually get a feeling of the tour.. The inside areas are dark and a little bad smelling, which, however can be expected to be better in future since construction works are in progress.. The ruins of the palace complex offer nice background to the visitors for clicking attractive photos.. There are places that are restricted and the visitors are advised not to take risks of going into.. It is also advised that the visitors stay far from the ruins without taking any risks of climbing or jumping on, and preserve their natural state.. The visitors may carry water, energy drinks, and eatbles (may be for now) inside to refresh themselves (However remembering to keep the place clean).. Washrooms are not available (again, may be for now) so it may cause some trouble to the needed.. Auto services are available connecting the palace complex to any other place in Hisar.. To summarize, if you want to roam in Hisar, Firoz Shah palace complex should be the first place to visit compared any other..
4Digital Expert O. 4 months agoLocation Hisar, Haryana, India Coordinates 29.166306°N 75.720587°E Settled 1357 Founded 1354 Built 14th century Built for Firoz Shah Tughlaq Demolished 1398 Restored by Archaeological Survey of India Architectural style(s) Islam Governing body Archaeological Survey of India Gurjari, the mistress of Firoz Shah Tughlaq, was a local resident of Hisar and belonged to a pastoral community. When Firoz asked her to accompany him to the throne at Delhi, she refused. So instead, he built a palace for her in Hisar and built his own palace complex around it.[citation needed. Parking available here Food stalls are also available but outside. Overall experience is very good 🙂
3The R. 1 year agoIt was built by Firoz Shah Tughlaq, the Sultan of Delhi (1351-1388 AD). The palace is built of rubble masonry covered with thick lime plaster. Its arches are supported on sandstone carved pillars possibly belonging to some Hindu temples. The palace complex consists of an open courtyard on the sides of which are placed two to three storied structures. In the massive western wall of the palace is a passage from where steps lead to the terrace. The passage meant for troops guarding the palace is provided with arch holes and includes a bastion, the hollow core of which has a pillared hall connected with other rooms of the palace.
3Amit S. 4 months agoThe palace, known as Hisar-i-Firuza, is located at a strategic point where the old Delhi Multan Road branches towards Khorasan, a historic region northeast of Iran. Construction began in 1354 CE, supervised by Firoz Shah. Stone was brought from the hills of Mahendragarh to build the ramparts, which were surrounded by a protective moat. A tank inside the complex was used to refill the moat. The complex was completed in 1356 after two and a half years, and Firoz Shah ordered his courtiers to build their palaces within the walls of the fort. Restoration work began on the palace in 1924 and has gradually continued since. The complex has been declared a Centrally Protected Monument by the Archaeological Survey of India.
