Red Fort (Lal Quila), New Delhi

3.9
With massive sandstone walls, Red Fort (Lal Quila) 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.

  • One of the most visited places You need about four to five hours to complete a look at the place. It also houses museums with miniatures of independence and arms used in the early times. It has a number of shops inside that handmade products and utilities. Unlike the local fashion markets, you do not have to bargain too You can try the best deal! Ps. Do get the audio guide that they will sell the ticket counter as it will be helpful for you
  • Great historical place! Inside here there are many small structures and multiple museum. It's a great place to visit with family and I'm sure that you won't get disappoint if you visit Red Fort once in your life. There are many things to explore there and many things to know about our history. I think there are three museums and 8 to 9 structures! And the area inside the Red Fort is also very big and well maintained also.. There are many residential building inside And you will require a ticket to get in. The ticket for the Museum will also get included with your ticket for 5 rupees extra. have a backpack which I'm allowed to take inside or you can also keep your bags in the baggage room!
  • Red fort is a good place to see in Delhi.A nice place to relax. Lots of places to capture photos & a huge place of historic buildings.The fort from inside is very big. It has handicraft shops and many more shops to see inside. It's quite big place to see inside....😊 Red Fort has an impressive history being the seat of Maugham power for some considerable time. The overall structure is still intact, however the internal body of the fort has either been looted over time or fallen into a state of disrepair. The architecture of the place is both Maugham as well as the late British buildings that were added making it a unique combination. Its worth getting a map of the fort so that you can see where exactly the sights within the fort are.
