It is more or like a replica of Agra fort. It is a massive structure from outside view. Inside it is a just a palace like any other. You will see the design elements similar to the Agra fort.

Red fort is a UNESCO world heritage site.The entrance is through Lahori gate (The gate faces Lahore, Pakisthan and hence the name). Three museums are present inside the complex. Do explore Salimgrah fort too

Very nice place, but a long way from car parking. It takes atleast 2-3 hours to visit the entire place. You can also see the light and sound show if you visit at evening time.

A decently-maintained fort, that as the name goes is completely red, with touches of marble once you're inside. There are many things to look forward to such as - 1. The mini street market that sells small keepsakes, accessories and traditional goodies, which will definitely catch your attention if you're not a regular Delhi-ite. 2. The various information boards which... More

It is a beautiful moment with rich history of battle and rulers. A grand entrance and beautiful mix of various architectural styles inside. A place not-to-miss if you are in Delhi.
