I first visited the fort in April 1965 and revisited 50 years later. Being the place from where our Prime Ministers hold Independence Day congregation and address the nation on 15th August I feel proud while visiting it.

Unfortunately some buildings now roped off but you can still imagine the opulence which this place once must have had. Pity the fountains etc not working but guide told me people are paid to maintain them but don't.this seems... More

A must see when visiting Deli. The red fort is a very large complex with incredible architecture and beautiful marble inlaid with gemstones. March - April was a good time for us as it was not too hot and not so many tourists. Our tour was arranged through Enchanting Travel and we had an amazing, knowledge guide who explained in... More

I did not have time to spend visiting internally, but having walked some way around the outside I would guess this to be a very worthwhile tour.

The place is beautiful, but avoid it on sundays. Its usually so crowded that on cannot enjoy. During our visit we could not even go inside the ancient buildings, because their stairways were impossibple to climb.

You will need great walking shoes, lots of water and determination to see all of the grounds of this huge structure. It takes about 2 hours to walk the grounds and buildings so pack lots of water. I could have been just as happy with a drive by view and a picture book.
