Where stories begin

Red Fort

A true representation of Mughal architecture, the imposing Red Fort had a great significance on the history of Delhi. Discover this red-stone complex of marble palaces, intricate pavilions and landscaped gardens.

This 17th-century fort, built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, is one of The Indian capital's most imposing sights. It's red sandstone walls rise to over 30 in places, and within you'll discover fascinating monuments to its two centuries as an imperial palace. The Rang Mahal was once part of the imperial harem but it's ornate carvings and marble fountains no longer carry their lavish coats of paint and mirrored mosaics, the Khas Mahal housed the royal apartments and prayer rooms, while the Diwan-e-Khas, was where the Mughal emperors received courtiers and state guests.

Even today, the Red Fort continues it's role as a site for political and national ceremonies – every year on India’s Independence Day, the Prime Minister addresses the nation and hoists the flag from its red sandstone ramparts.

Take one of our tours to India and discover the Red Fort, and learn how this vast monument to imperial power connects modern India to its past.
