The majestic Mughal marvel Red Fort, is also commonly famed as the Lal Quila. It is said to be the largest of old Delhi's monuments. This thick red sandstone massive structure has withstood the vagaries of time and nature. Bulging with turrets and bastions, Red Fort is one of the centre of attractions for the visitors from all across the globe. The walls of Red Fort extend up to two kilometre and vary in height from 18 metres on the river side to 33 metres on the city side. Red Fort is considered to represent the zenith of Mughal creativity, which under emperor Shah Jahan was brought to a new level of refinement

The palace was designed as an imitation of paradise as described in the Koran; a couplet inscribed in the palace reads, "If there be a paradise on earth, it is here, it is here." Red FortHistory
The Red Fort was the palace for the Mughal Emperor's new capital, Shahjahanabad. The fort lies along the Yamuna river. Mughal emperor Shah Jahan started the construction of the fort in 1638 and got completed in 1648.

Red Fort in Detail
The fort is a massive structure and one can have a look at the halls of public and private audience, domed and arched marble palaces, plush private apartments, a mosque and elaborately designed gardens. The for till today displays the grandeur of the Mughal dynasty. The fort was once attacked by the Persian Emperor Nadir Shah in 1739 and by the British soldiers during the war of independence in 1857 but still the charm of the fort has not lost its touch and relevance, still antiquity reverberates here.

The entrance to the fort is through the Lahore Gate, which faces Lahore(now in Pakistan). The gate is of special significance for India, since the first war of Independence because it has been the venue of many important speeches, delivered by freedom fighters and national leaders of India.

Chatta Chowk, the main entrance is covered with a number of colourful bazaars selling items like jewellery, carpets and other items of delight.

Apart from Diwan-i-am and Diwan-i-Khas, there are other attractions within Red Fort that needs a sneak peek. The Hammams or the Royal Baths, the Shahi Burj, which used to be Shahjahan's private working area, the Moti Masjid or the Pearl Mosque built by Aurangzeb are some of the attractions here.

Feather to the cap
This year has finally turned out to be golden period for this great Mughal marvel. Red Fort recently this year has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Pitted against 45 other sites from across the globe, the Red Fort was finally selected.
