Red Fort- Lal Kila


Lal Kila, also known as the Red Fort, is a historic fortification located in Old Delhi, India. It was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the 17th century and served as the main residence of the Mughal emperors for nearly 200 years. The fort derives its name from the red sandstone used in its construction.

The Red Fort is a significant landmark in Indian history and is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is known for its impressive architecture, which blends Persian, Islamic, and Indian styles. The fort covers a vast area and is surrounded by high walls with several gates and bastions.

One of the most notable structures within the Red Fort is the Diwan-i-Aam, or the Hall of Public Audience, where the emperor would address the general public and hear their grievances. Another prominent building is the Diwan-i-Khas, or the Hall of Private Audience, which was used for private meetings and receptions.

The fort also houses several other structures, including the Rang Mahal (Palace of Colors), the Mumtaz Mahal, the Moti Masjid (Pearl Mosque), and the Hammam (royal bath). The fort complex also features beautiful gardens, pavilions, and courtyards.

Every year on Independence Day, the Prime Minister of India hoists the national flag at the Red Fort and delivers a speech to the nation. The fort is a popular tourist attraction, attracting visitors from all over the world who come to admire its architectural grandeur and learn about its historical significance.
