Red Fort - Review

The Red Fort is a beautiful fort complex that is in many ways symbolic of the splendor of Delhi and its Moughal history. Shah Jahan the Great Moughal emperor gave the fort its present prestigious position when he shifted his capital from Agra to Delhi at the Red fort. Apart from its Mughal history for which this fort is famous for, the Red Fort is of extreme value to Independent India as it hosted the first speech of Independence by Jawahar Lal Nehru here.

The sandstone walls give it its distinctive red color and it its name; the Lal Qilah or Red Fort. But the fort isn’t just one building but a complex of a various sections and palaces that render it a grandeur that isn’t easily paralleled by other historical buildings in India. The buildings are quite grand and striking and the interiors feature very intricate and ornate art work that leaves tourists mesmerized. Although it isn’t in its former glory but the fort is still quite beautiful. The fort stands on the Yamuna River which left it with a perfect strategic location in the old times. Today its location gives it a sense of exquisiteness and makes you forget that a busy city exists right outside. There is also a beautiful music and sound show that is put up every evening. The show is certainly worth a watch or maybe two!

  • The Red fort is our one of the best heritage place.... Good Tourists place The Red Fort is one of the most popular monuments in the history of India. It has a big area for the visitors to watch over. Different sections have their own importance. Highlighted. It has also has a museum showcasing various historic parts of the past. Be it uniforms, Spears, swords or old telephonic instruments. A good watch. But a big factor to be considered is the weather. It's an open air place, so if you go on a sunny day make it a point to carry your goggles and cap. Not to forget drinking water. The place is facilitated with | public washrooms and drinking water. But please choose a pleasant weather period to visit or else you'll be drenched in sweat.

  • Well, if you are interested in history , this place is simply for you. The real beauty of the Red Fort lies inside. There is a ticket for museum at a very nominal price for Indians {:)} you can easily spend 4-5 hours inside. You will have to walk a lot, be prepare for it. Museum has some very beautiful articles to display but they will not let you capture those in your camera. Go with friends, families, team, colleagues and get to know MORE about our heritage. It also comes under UNESCO World Heritage Site list. Enjoy!
