Red Fort - Old Dehli

Vibrant red walls protecting the city

This UNESCO World Heritage site is composed of vibrant rust-red sandstone walls that tower above the bustle of Old Delhi. Initially built to keep invaders out, the ancient Red Fort dates from the 17th century and now brings in flocks of tourists. Enter through Lahore Gate, a symbol of India's national identity, and head to the vaulted arcade of Chatta Chowk (the iconic bazaar) to experience an authentic Indian bazaar filled with hawkers and vendors, followed by an exploration of the Drum House, the white marble Hall of Private Audiences, the Pearl Mosque, and the Royal Baths. Explore Hayat Baksh Bagh (life bestowing gardens), Khas Mahal (private palace), Mumtaz Mahal (jewel palace), and Swatantra Sangrama Sangrahalaya (Museum of the Independence Movement).
