Lal Mahal or the Red Palce is a 13th century historical monument belonging to the Delhi Sultanate period. It was constructed in 1245 A.D in the Hazrat Nizamuddin Basti during the reign of Nasiruddin Mahmud Shah, and was called as the Kushaki Lal. The historical grandeur of this monument can be gauged from the fact that when the Moroccon traveller, Ibn Batuta visited Delhi in teh 14th century, he stayed here. Presently the monument is in a severe state of deterioration and heavily encroached and requires urgent remedial measures.
