Red Fort

Iconic 17th-century Mughal-era fortress built by Emperor Shah Jahan, known for its massive red sandstone walls in India's capital.

Tips from the community

This reddish-brown palace fort is replete with impressive archways, minarets that extend into the sky, and enough rich history to make it feel like a museum. As the main residence of the Mughal Emperors back in the 1600s, Red Fort is a fascinating piece of the past in the center of bustling Delhi. It took 8 years, 10 months, and 25 days to build — which explains why it’s so grand. I have to hand it to them; I really like what they did with the place.
