The Qila Rai Pithora was constructed in the 12th century by Rajput ruler Prithviraj Chauhan. The first was constructed after the Chauhan Rajputs took over Delhi from the Tomar Rajputs.

The complex of the Qila Lal Pithora also includes the Lal Kot, which had been built in the 8th century by Tomar ruler Anang Pal I. Throughout the 12th and 13th century, it was from this fort that the Tomars, Chauhans and the Slave Dynasty ruled Delhi. Apart from the fort the complex also contains a statue of Prithvi Raj Chauhan .Presently, there is not much left of the fort and remains of the crumbling fort walls can be seen scattered through various parts of South Delhi such as Saket, Mehrauli and Qutub Complex.
