About Purana Qila from Seher’s website:
Built in the 16th century by Humayun and completed by Sher Shah Suri, it stands on the ruins of Indraprastha, said to be the capital city of the Pandavas. The monument, like the dance, is simultaneously ancient and contemporary- a paradox that resolves in the timeless.
