Lalbagh Fort is frequented by mostly youngsters and tourists. Though the name Lalbagh implies Red, the fort walls are pink. Though the gardens in the fort area is maintained well, the tanks and the fountains are closed down. Considering the area it surrounds, its a good walk around the fort perimeter.

The link between the Taj Mahal and Lalbag Fort fascinated me. The museum has several artifacts going back to 17th century.

In a city that is not overly endowed with good tourist attractions this is one that may hold some interest. It is quite run down but this fits in with the city. It was built as a fort (also called Fort Aurangabad) initially and also has a tomb of a ruling governors daughter (Pari Bibi), as well as a mosque,... More

It is more of gardens than fort. Nothing remains that remotely can be called a piece of history. There is an entrance fee for foreigners.

Though it was one of the archeological place in the capital, unfortunately the land grabbers and pollution has destroyed some of the beauty of the Fort. This is one of the prime historical place in the city one must visit and show it to new generations. During the school summer holidays wet with family, it was an good experience. authority... More
