Lal Quila- The Red Fort @Delhi

Since my relocation to Delhi about a year ago- I have felt guilty that I know nothing about Delhi. So as part of my lost list of 2008 resolutions- I have now started visiting the various monuments/museums in Delhi. Red Fort is the start of this “Know about Delhi” series.

Situated in the heart of Old Delhi (some call it Delhi 6) the Red Fort symbolises the Independent nation that we are, coz its the tricolor flying at Red Fort that most of us aqssociate Independence Day celebrations with.
Most of the fort is now taken over by the army & only a small section of it is open for public viewing- but you see the Mughal architecture in its full grandeur.
There’s the Rang Mahal,Diwan-e-Aam, Moti Masjid,the royal hamam, the elaborate gardens & the not so impressive museum.
