This architectural wonder will leave you spell-bound. This massive fort is a sandstone carcass of its former self. Clearly visible and walking distance from Chandni Chowk Market. It boasts to be one of the three UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Maintenance can be better though.

A place which every Indian must plan to visit once. The sheer history of this place houses makes it an important tourist destination. The freedom fighters' museum awakens a sense of patriotism in every tourist. Audio guide is also available and the architecture is impressive.

This fort has a vast and elegant architecture , which easily beats the India Gate or any other monument in Delhi for a moment. The musuem also features a lot of exciting stuff.

Red fort is not only a Mughal monument but very important for independent India. All our Prime ministers, right from Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, have been addressing the nation from it's ramparts on 15 August. The location of Red fort is also very centered.
