The Ramlila Maidan, also popularly known as the Lanka Maidan is a large ground located in the middle of the city of Delhi
. Located inside the walled city, the Ramlila Maidan is walled on all sides, has two large gates and is very well maintained, it even has a pond in the middle. The Ramlila Grounds are popular because every year during Dusshera, the demon king Ravana's effigy is burned here and Ramlila is performed here everyday during this period.
The Ramlila Maidan is located near the New Delhi Railway Station and Delhi Gate. These grounds have been in the news a lot lately because of Baba Ramdev's campaign against black money there in April this year and currently Anna Hazare's hunger strike against corruption that will be carried out at the Ramlila Maidan.
