The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has started clearing the dense jungles where unexplored portions of the Siri Fort wall have remained hidden for centuries. While many parts of this 13th century wall located around Khel Gaon Marg, in the heart of south Delhi, have been exposed by ASI in earlier projects, it is planning to excavate the entire length of the wall. This exercise is expected to take up to a year. Sources say this is the only ancient wall in the city where it's possible to expose the entire structure, unlike Qila Rai Pithora or Jahapanah wall.
