Red Fort-Most Prominent Monument of India

The Red Fort is one of the most prominent monuments of the world. Located in the heart of Delhi, this structure was the residence of the Mughals and also the political centre of the Mughal Empire. The Red Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2007. This is the most iconic tourist hotspot in Delhi.

The gargantuan building was constructed by Shah Jahan in 1639. The thick defensive walls contain several turrets and platforms, which were planned for an impregnable defence. Crafted with the beautiful floral patterns and massive domes adorn this piece of architecture. The famed Diwan-i-Aam and Diwan-i-Khas are located inside this complex.
