Red Fort

Opposite Chandni Chowk , Old Delhi

Delhi's most famous monument, the Red Fort, stands as a powerful reminder of the Mughal emperors who ruled India. Its walls, which stretch for over two kilometers (1.2 miles), were built in 1638 to keep out invaders. However, they failed to stop the fort being captured by the Sikhs and the British. To take your imagination back to the ancient era, a one hour sound and light show of the fort's history is held each evening.

Where: Opposite Chandni Chowk, Old Delhi.

Entry Cost: $5 or 250 rupees. Free for children under 15 years.

Time: Sunrise until sunset. Closed Mondays.

Sound & Light Show: In English at 7.30 p.m from November to January, 8.30 p.m. from January to April and September to October, and 9 p.m. from May to August.
