The Red Fort is over 350 years old and deeply connected to India’s history. Here’s everything you need to know about Delhi’s most popular tourist attractions.
Once the heart of the Mughal Sultanate, the Red Fort now tops the bucket list of every tourist up for a heritage tour of Delhi. It earns the name red fort due to the outer fort wall made entirely of red sandstone. It was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 2007.
Agra Fort, also known as Laal Quila, is located in Agra, India. It is tagged as world heritage site by UNESCO in 1983. The fort is about 2.5 kilometers far from the Taj Mahal.
The Red Fort (usually transcribed into English as Lal Qil’ah or Lal Qila) is a 17th-century fort complex constructed by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan in the walled city of Old Delhi (in present day Delhi, India) that served as the residence of the Mughal Emperors. The fort was the palace for Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s new capital, Shahjahanabad, the seventh city in the Delhi site. He moved his capital here from Agra in a move designed to bring prestige to his reign, and to provide ample opportunity to apply his ambitious building schemes and interests.
