About Red Fort

The 33-metre long line-up of the red sandstone walls of the Red Fort is a reminder of the great power that Mughals exerted over Delhi. Even now, the buildings inside the fort can make your senses reel under the cumulative impact of marble, gilded pillars, delicate carvings, and the realization that it was inlaid with precious gems at one point in time. Commissioned by Shah Jahan in 1638, this attraction took over 10 years to complete. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it sprawls over approximately 254 acres and has beautiful carvings on its walls. The Diwan-I-Am with its painted canopy and the Khas Mahal with its intricate marble jaali are the highlights of this place. Watch out for the Shah Burj and Moti Masjid as they were built by Aurangzeb and has pearl-like lustrous marbles. Don't skip the ASI Museum here as it displays Dara Shikoh's calligraphy, Bahadur Shah's clothes, letters that express political emergency during earlier times and life in paintings. A light and sound show happens in the evening that engages and engrosses you in the history of the Red Fort beautifully.
