The Red Fort is situated in Delhi, India, and was built in the year 1639. The Red Fort is a World Heritage Site recognized by UNESCO and exhibits Indo-Islamic and Mughal Architectural styles. The Red Fort once served as the main residence of the Mughal Empire. The Red Fort is also famously called Lal Quila.

There are several museums in the fort, which are a must-visit. The Fort, it is believed, was constructed by Shah Jahan and was built from Red Sandstone. The design of the gardens of the Red Fort and its architecture later inspired many buildings and gardens in Kashmir, Rajasthan, and Punjab. The Prime Minister of India hoists the National Flag on the 15th of August at the main gate of the Red Fort. The chief architect of the Red Fort was Ustad Ahmad Lahauri who also designed the Taj Mahal. The Fort is situated on the banks of the River Yamuna. The boundaries of the fort are asymmetrical.

The Red Fort remains open from Sunrise to Sunset and is closed on Mondays. There is an entry fee of Rs. 35/- for Indians and Rs. 500/- for foreigners. A Sound & Light Show is also organized in the evenings.
