We were looking forward to this, but the location of the ticket window is away from the entrance and difficult to locate for the first time visitor. 2) Most tourist sopts have the shops at the end of the tour, but here one sees the shops at the beginning! The monuments were poorly maintained and could do with more! The... More

Big lines at ticket counters. Nice place. Guides are troubling and pestering. Avoid the summertime. Restrooms in pathetic conditions. If you are interested in history very nice place. Sound & light show in the evening is good. Please carry mosquito repellent .

This is no Agra Fort. If you want to save 500 rupee entrance fees for foreign tourist, you could take pictures from the outside. You can also go to where the fort exit is and see the 2 live sized black elephants guarding the gate - it's opposite direction to the main entrance. Beware of rickshaw crooks that ask for... More

Not worth the 500 rupees. Came here at 8.30 am, rude staff and a more or less abandoned place, that has lost its authenticity. 7/8 palaces and audience halls are closed. You can look at then from the front and walk aside them, but access to the actual rooms is blocked. It's not maintained, most gems are removed from the... More

I have a book at home of Wonders of the World and the Red Fort at New Delhi is in it. After visiting it i am at a loss to know why. There is very little to recommend it to the visitor. Firstly you have the usual struggle of brushing off unwanted attention from tuc-tuc drivers and prospective guides. This... More

Lal Killa is in Huge Area with amazing Architectural Structure!! You can roam with history while visiting the spots. Mughal emperor's residence and royalness will be illustrated with the large site. Some Sound & Light shows were there but we missed it. Must visit in Delhi.
