The outer wall is very impressive. The entry point is a long walk, but worth it. The inside of the complex is less impressive the the fort in Agra. When exiting the complex keep your eye out on your possessions when the market is open.

Fascinating history and architecture but it is a shame that the water features are dry. I did wonder if it was called the Red Fort after the spit marks particularly on the museum staircases.

It's hard to imagine the grandeur of this fort and how much land is enclosed within its walls. This is very much like the Agra Fort, so if you are going to Agra to see the Taj Mahal, you may only want to visit one or the other. We saw both and the Agra fort is much better preserved. We... More

A landmark building in Delhi. Best done with a guide as there is a lot of history to take in. Was home to several Mughal emperors situated on a large area of land scattered with many beautiful buildings, all with their own history. A place where the emperors lived lavishly with their concubines. Great place for photos

The Red Fort is a verry impressive objective, as many in Delhi. The color is becoming more reddish at the sunset so i recommend visiting starting 4 pm in winter season to catch all its beauty. The exist of the fort is guided by two beautiful black elefants, statues of course, which give a special touch to the fort. It... More
