    Il Naqqar Khana or "House of the drums" is found in various mughal complexes and it was used to house the musicians that they welcomed visitors, with some exceptions, they had to come down here from their elephants. The Red Fort of Delhi is a handsome red sandstone building on three floors with good decorations which once had to be colored and gilded. It now houses the Museum of the Indian war.

    Not well maintained, very few people visit although they are allowed to go without any extra charge. When I visited, in the whole museum area only 2-3 visitors were there. At the end you can say it, a good place to visit for those who have genuine interest in history

    The Museum was set up as a tribute to Indian soldiers who lost their lives in India and abroad during the World War. It is located in Naubat Kahana in its first and second floors. Please pay a visit and you will not be disappointed to see so many weapons. One can also see complete dress of Maharaja Pratap Singh of Jodhpur. Do visit, please.

    Established as Shahjahanabad in 1648, The Red Fort was known as the capital of the Mughal Empire in India. Its construction is attributed to Shah Jahan who also built the famous Taj Mahal in Agra, and was also known by the name Quila Mubarak and remained the residence of the Mughal Imperial family for nearly 20 decades.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
