On Netaji Subhash Marg, near Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi

Red Fort DelhiAbout the Red Fort Delhi :

One of the most spectacular pieces of Mughal Architecture is the Lal Quila or the Red Fort, whose thick red sandstone walls, bulging with turrets and bastions, have withstood the vagaries of time and nature.Built by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan between 1638 and 1648, the Red Fort has walls extending up to 2 kms. in length with the height varying from 18 mts. on the river side to 33 mts. on the city side. The fort lies along the Yamuna River.

Shahjahan, started the construction of this massive fort in 1638, when he shifted the capital from Agra to Delhi. The fort was completed along with the huge city of Shajahanabad after nine years on 16th April 1648.

Attractions of the Red Fort : -

>> Lahore Gate, or Delhi Gate is the main entrance to the Red Fort is through this imposing gateway flanked by semi-octagonal towers. The gate is named thus because it faces West, towards Lahore in Pakistan.

>> Chatta Chowk, also known as Meena Bazaar, this was one of the first covered bazaars of the 17th century, that used to house Delhi's most skilful jewellers, carpet makers, weavers and goldsmiths.

>> Diwan-i-Aam the Hall of Public Audiences, where the Emperor would sit and hear complaints of the common folk.

>> Diwan-i-Khas is the hall of private audiences, where the Emperor held private meetings.

>> Rang Mahal or the 'Palace of Colors' housed the Emperor's wives and mistresses.

>> Naubat or Naqqar Khana, is situated at the entrance of the palace area. Here music was played five times a day at the appointed hours. It housed a gate known as 'Hathi Pol' (Elephant Gate), where visitors dismounted from their elephants.

>> Mumtaz Mahal, one of the original six main-palaces situated along the river front, Mumtaz Mahal was also known as 'Chhoti Baithak'. A beautiful water channel called 'Nahr-i-Bihisht' (meaning Stream of Paradise) flew through these palaces. However, this palace has been removed, probably because it was totally in ruins.
