Red Fort

The Red Fort is one of the most important monuments in Delhi, standing as a strong reminder of the powerful Mughal Rule in India. It was built in the 17th century by Emperor Shah Jahan. Because of the use of red sandstone, the fort came to be known as Lal Qila or the Red Fort. Also, because of the architectural finesse of the fort and the fact that it was the home of the royal family, the fort is also known as Qila-e-Mubarak or the blessed fort.

The style of architecture that is used in the Red Fort is known as the Shahjahani style which is a unique blend of Persian, European and Indian style. There are two entrances to this great fort - The Delhi Gate and the Lahore Gate. If you are on a visit to the popular Chandani Chowk market, you approach the fort from the Lahore Gate. The other gate leads to the Southern end of the busy market. You can even enjoy a lovely sound and light show in the evenings.

The Red Fort retains its importance in the country’s capital even today. It is the centre for the Indian Independence Day celebration where the Prime Minister delivers the most important speech of the year addressing the people of the nation.
