This post is extremely great yet the group were horrible, in the event that you are anticipating going go the soonest you can to maintain a strategic distance from the general population! It merits seeing however.

The fort is very popular and situated in delhi near Chandni chowk. The fort was built by Mughals and has great importance. Good to explore the nice and amazingly constructed fort. During National festivals, prime minister gives speech from this point.

Impressive externally and very extensive internally. A further development of the mogul dynasties. The design encompassing gates set at right angles evolved to prevent attacks by troops and accompanying elephants. The palaces within the fort were impressive in their use of marble.

Red Fort reminds us of the great Mughals. It was made of red stone (hence the name of Red Fort) by Shah Jahan. It was centre of political activity during his time.

You actually have to park your vehicle around a km away and walk to this monument. It is surprisingly clean from the inside but something different on outside. Crazy traffic on the road adjacent to it.

Good pictures here. Impressive building. Lots of history to learn for example ninety degree turn just inside gate to slow the enemy down on their elephants.

Nothing much to see here. Entry to most of the havelis is restricted. Although the Martyrs museum is very interesting and history buffs will love to be in the museum. Avoid visiting in the afternoon.

Red Fort is a huge fort in Delhi which was a testimony to India's independence. This was where Jawaharlal Nehru gave India's independence speech from on the night or 14 August 1947. The fort is well maintained and there is also a show about Indian independence late in the evening.
