Create an itinerary including Red Fort
With massive sandstone walls, Red Fort represents a major Mughal-era structure with a place on the World Heritage List. Built by Shah Jahan of Taj Mahal fame in 1648, the fort long served as an imposing center of Mughal power. Though you cannot explore much of the fort due to its importance as a military base, you can still marvel at the host of colonnades and pavilions that survived the colonial-era gutting by the British. You'll also get an up-close look at some of the watchtowers and defensive positions that punctuate the wall. Keep in mind that your entry ticket includes admission to the fort's internal museums.

  • It was beautiful place and it almost take 2 hours to walk entire place . I visit the museum within to learn more about each initiative and weapons used during that time. but spent 90 minutes walking around the grounds and still felt I could take longer. where there a lot of maintain it amazingly! This landmark comprises a large complex full of multiple architectural structures with acres of well-kept gardens in between. It is all enclosed by a huge red wall, giving it its name. It felt safe and the facilities are clean. Absolutely worth a visit! One of the greatest monuments of India and the walk around the place is so peaceful. A must visit for relaxation and learning more about the history of Indian revolution of getting freedom. Great place to be opted for children to understand our history and explore this monument. Also, they host lot of shops within the premises. During Indian Independence day the Indian flag is hoisted here. We can go by bus , metro, taxi , auto.but I prefer metro , and the station was with in 50 metres and easy access without traffic .

  • It took me close to two hours to walk the entire place because it was such a beautiful place. I go to the museum located within to get more information on the various campaigns and weapons that were used during that time period. Despite having spent the previous 90 minutes walking around the grounds, I had the impression that I still had more time. where is there a great deal of it being maintained so wonderfully! This historic site is comprised of a large complex that is home to a variety of architectural structures separated by expansive grounds that have been meticulously maintained. It gets its name from the enormous wall that surrounds it all, which is red. It gave off an air of security, and the amenities are spotless. Unquestionably deserving of a trip there! One of the most impressive monuments in all of India, and the atmosphere is very calming as you stroll around the grounds.
