Re-live the gory scenes around these oldest fort walls of Delhi, while the pale ghostly light of the moon makes the forest trail take on an eerie avatar...and the flash of camera on the dark, no-moon night can seemingly transforming the most innocent looking trees into the abode of the supernatural & scary!
