It has been a witness to the rise and fall of various dynasties who chose the city as their seat of power. Its history began with the city of Indraprastha from the Hindu epic Mahabharata, sometime around 5000 BC. Various rulers like Qutub-ud-din Aibek, Alauddin Khilji, Tughlaks, Humayun and Shah Jahan built numerous monuments; also the Walled City Shah Jahanabad.
