Old Delhi's Impressive Red Fort

The Red Fort (Lal Quila) is a red sandstone fortress and the largest monument in Old Delhi. Commissioned by Shah Jahan in 1638, the complex covers almost 255 acres along the Yamuna River. The fort comes alive in the evening with a sound and light show that recreates 5,000 years of India's history.

The one-hour spectacle is quite enchanting, with rulers and historical events corresponding to specific fort locations. Grab dinner across the street in Chandni Chowk, one of the oldest and busiest markets in the city.

Note: Closed on Mondays.
