What i used to study in my history classes, came live, when i visited Red Fort. So much history and information can be obtained here, about the Mughal era. When visiting red fort, keep half a day at least, to visit all the sections of the fort properly.

Better know to be the place from which the PM of India addresses the nation every independence day on 15th August. This place has a grand entrance and lot of security checks. However the place is ill maintained with zero amenities and history mismanaged with all significant buildings falling apart or sealed as no entry zone. After the long walk... More

A nice place to get some rest and walk around some pleasant gardens and enjoy the architecture. There is a small museum inside with swords and military equipment.

Beautiful architecture combined with glorious history. Agra fort is better than that Red Fort. It's see to waste of time and money. Construction work is going on every where.

Shahjahan, started the construction of this massive fort in 1638, when he shifted the capital from Agra to Delhi. The Red sandstone walls of the massive Red Fort rise 33-m above the clamor of Old Delhi as a reminder of... More

I heard that the Lal Quila was running a sound and light show during the time that I was in New Delhi, and thought that it would be fun since it would allow me to get away from the oppressive heat of the day. Even though it was night time and the Lal Quila had lots and lots of trees,... More

This is one of the grandest Mughal architecture tourist attraction in the country.Definitely worth a visit whenever one is in Delhi. Please do take an ASI approved guide and though they cost a bit more than the local guides infesting the place, the ASI approved ones are worth the amount that they charge. The light and sound show is one... More

This fort was built around 1700, great historical place to visit if you are in Delhi. The red color of the fort makes it stand out from a distance. The place is immense so if you visit please go on a cool day. Great experience overall!

People staying in Delhi and nearby cities, should visit this place. Its nicely maintained. Only thing is the transportation. The traffic is too much near this place. I would suggest to take public transport to reach this place.
