The Ramlila Maidan, also popularly known as the Lanka Maidan is a huge ground located in the middle of the city of Delhi. Situated inside the walled city, the Ramlila Maidan is fortified on all sides, has two large gates and is very well-maintained. The maidan 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 everyday during this period. The ground is also used for other religious gatherings and major political meetings, rallies and other events.


The Ramlila Maidan is located near the New Delhi Railway Station and Delhi Gate.


Before 1930, the Ramlila Maidan was a big pond. However, during the 1930s, it was filled up so that the venue for the annual Ramlila held in floodplains of Yamuna River near Red Fort could be shifted here. It was in the 1800s that the Hindu soldiers started organising the Ramlila at the Red Fort.


The Ramlila Maidan has been a venue for many important events such as it was the place where Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru held a public meeting in 1961 to welcome Queen Elizabeth. Many other meetings and gatherings have been held here which include post war gatherings, rallies against government policies etc.

The ground has been in the news lately because of Baba Ramdev's campaign against black money and Anna Hazare's hunger strike against corruption that was be carried out at the Ramlila Maidan.
