“City of Djinns” – Unraveling the Myth!
“City of Djinns” – Unraveling the Myth!
with Gaurav Sharma


Come and uncover the story of the establishment of the 5th city of Delhi during 1351-1413 AD. Discover why the city which was once considered as the “Rome of Asia” now lies in ruins. Unravel the story of a Sultan who, despite having all riches at his command, couldn’t buy beautiful buildings. Come and discover the story of the maker of this fort and of a gullible Sultan who immediately agreed to what religious men told him - a man who was fooled by both Sufis and Pandits. No wonder at this place people are continued to be fooled even today. Come and discover why Ferozabad is certainly not a “City of Djinns”.
