About Red Fort, Delhi

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!
