Description : The Red Fort was the palace for Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan's new capital, Shahjahanabad, the seventh Muslim city in the Delhi site. He moved his capital from Agra in a move designed to bring prestige to his reign, and to provide ample opportunity to apply his ambitious building schemes and interests. The Red Fort stands at the eastern edge of Shahjahanabad, and gets its name from the massive wall of red sandstone that defines its four sides. The wall is 1.5 miles (2.5 km) long, and varies in height from 60ft (16m) on the river side to 110 ft (33 m) towards the city. Measurements have shown that the plan was generated using a square grid of 82 m.

One of the jewells of Mughal architecture, Red Fort has been declared World Heritage Site in 2007. Mughal Emepror Shah Jahan started the construction of this fort in 1638 and was given the final touch in 1648.A red sandstone monument, Red Fort houses a number of interesting structures namely Diwan - I - Khas, Diwan - I Aam, Rang Mahal, Khas Mahal, Moti Masjid etc.
