The momentous Ramlila Maidan is an extensive ground in the core of Delhi (Ashif Ali Road, Ajmere Gate), used for religious festivals, political rallies as well as cultural activities. It is conventionally used as a stage for the annual Ramlila.

How to Reach

The Ramlila Maidan lies in the heart of Delhi, and is thus very easy to reach.
  • By Metro: New Delhi, Chawri Bazar and Chandni Chowk are the nearest metro stations to the ground. From these, one can take a cycle rickshaw, auto rickshaw, or even walk the distance if the weather is good.
  • By train: The New Delhi station is the nearest railway station to the ground. That said, the Old Delhi station isn't far also, being just four km away.

The Ramilila Maidan was formerly a pond. It was converted into a ground in the early 1930s to host the annual Ramlila, which was previously being staged behind the Red Fort on the flood plains. The Ramlila ground still has a small pond inside it as a remembrance of its past. It gradually became a spot to hold important public and political meetings.

The Ramlila Ground is known for hosting the Ramlila during the Dusshera festival. Also, the effigy of Ravana is burnt here every year to celebrate the victory of good over evil.
