The Red Fort

The Red Fort, located in the middle of Delhi and founded by Shah Jahan between 1638 and 1648, was home to the Mughal Empire for nearly 200 years, up until 1987. Home to a number of museums, the Red Fort is protected by a 18 meter high wall, as the monuments were constructed with marbles and sandstones during the time when the Mughal dynasty was in power and were flushed with precious gold and stones. The Mughal Empire lost their reign over the Red Fort when the last of their emperor's Bahadur Shah Zafar got exiled to Burma for his role in the First War of Independence. The Red Fort then was completely reconstructed and turned into barrack blcoks for the new conquerors colonial army. Today, light shows are held in the evenings, barring Mondays, to highlight the key events in the history of the prestigious Red Fort.
