Feroz Shah Kotla is a fortress constructed by Sultan Feroz Shah as a walled city he named Ferozabad. The fort came into being when the Mughals decided to shift their capital from Tughlaqabad to Ferozabad, because of water scarcity. The fort contained beautiful gardens, baolis (step wells) palaces, mosques and madrassas.

One of the most notable features of the Feroz Shah Kotla Fort is the 13 metre tall Ashoka Pillar, which stands upon a pyramid like structure. The pillar was brought from Ambala to Delhi by Feroe Shah and is engraved with edicts of Ashoka’s principles.
