“Amazing architecture .”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

As a foreigner , the entrance fee is 250 rupees. You enter and pass through a row of shops selling souvenirs but no food or beverages. Then you come upon the palace where the emperor used to live. Vast grounds and scattered buildings made of carved marble and red rock , as well as the huge emptied fountains and ponds made one imagine the once grandeur of the place. There were some renovation and restoration works going on though. All in all , worth a 1 hour visit if you are in Delhi.

“Good Historical place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

It is a place which is about 100 years old. Shahajahan use to live there. Inside there is a room known as Diwan-i-Am where the kings use to listen and decide the necessary actions which are needed to be taken for their kingdom. There were many battles held in this fort. It is a place worth to be seen by the lovers of history.

“Powerful presence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We arrived on a day that had a religious festival happening, which added to the mystic of this place. Climbing up the hill, through the gate a huge red stoned building of amazing history. The fortitude of the people who built this building must have been extremely skilled. the atmosphere got you.

“Worth a quick walk though”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Its walls are huge and magestic looking, however it really doesn't carry through to the inside. There are a couple of nice areas inside including the main gate. and the royal sitting area with the columns. Its close by to old Delhi so worth a quick trip especially if your not going to other areas to see some of the much more impressive forts.
