The Salimgarh Fort in the Red Fort complex will soon attract domestic and foreign tourists in a new look. Especially the part where Azad Hind Fauj’s soldiers were held captive. People are introduced to the stories of freedom fighters. The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) is working to preserve the Salimgarh Fort. According to the Archaeological Survey of India, the work is expected to be completed within a month in view of the G20 summit.

In fact, Major General Shah Nawaz Khan of the Azad Hind Army, Colonel Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon, Colonel Prem Kumar and many other freedom fighters were imprisoned by the British after World War II. The half dome of Salimgarh has been damaged in many places by rain and lightning. ASI is doing the work to put it right. The stories of the freedom struggle are shown to the visitors in eight adjacent barracks out of the 20 prison barracks built in the fortress. In addition to coloring pictures, there will also be information boards here. The prison gate and half dome remain. About 35 artisans from Dholpur in Rajasthan do the conservation work here.
