Red Fort


Red Fort can easily be considered as the best specimen of Mughal Palace Architecture. This grand fort was built not under one king but under many kings spanning a couple of centuries.

 

Red Fort bears distinct style of the different periods and different artisans who worked to make it what it is today. Made of red sandstone, the fort truly inspires awe and admiration because of the epic proportion in which it was constructed. The fort was christened Red Fort because of its color.

 

The Red Fort had two separate utilities. A portion of the fort was used for residential purpose while the other portion was used for defence. The outer wall of the fort has two gates namely the Amar Singh gate and the Delhi Gate. Both the gates are made of red sandstone and have twin towers on the flanks. To foil invasion attempts, there are a number of right angular turns before anyone can reach the gate.

 

Built during the time of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, the fort symbolize a luxurious elegance that you will surely find in no other building in the world. The fort is indicative of the splendor of the Mughal royalty when the empire was at its zenith.

 

This historic fort retells the story of medieval India through its architectural beauty and infinite variety.
