Red Fort In New Delhi

Red Fort is one of the fort made by mughal emperors. It was being made in seventeenth century. It was the place from where king of whole ancient India lived and ruled the whole country. 

History :

It was built by Shah Jahan in around 1639 AD when capital was shifted from Agra to Delhi. This was built with Red stones so its called Red fort. This Fort have Importance as its located in Capital of India and it was used by Mughal's for ruling the country.

About This : 

At present every year on Republic day and independence day Indian national flag is hoisted at Red fort , New delhi. President and Prime minister also joins the celebration So it has importance all over India.

My Experiences : 

When i entered Red fort i was amazed at its unique construction. It has beautiful architecture which is made in Mughal culture. Its art is a bit similar to forts in Rajashthan which has glazed dome at top of the building or a place which gives it a Mughal architecture look similar to amber fort and some other forts of Rajasthan which are combination of Indo-Islamic architecture.

Now after looking at it from outside , i went to ticket window and took a ticket. Cost of this ticket was 30 Rs. and 5 Rs. extra for Museum. So i took a ticket of both fort and museum for 35 Rs. As i had a travel bag so i placed my bag at treasury room which cost me 10 Rs.

Now i headed to visit this place. Some parts of this fort was under maintenance. Though it doesn't affect its beauty. As it was around 9 AM so crowd was not much , that was good for me to feel it.

There are different Mahals which have different structures like a unique building with some arhitectural structures. There are gardens in this fort which maybe peaceful to relax and take some rest. I sat there and took a break , as i was tired. Though there are no ups and downs in this fort and palace but i was tired of long travel time.

After some time i headed to visit more of this. Again there were some mahals which were under maintenance and it was not allowed to enter in some of them. You can see it from outside as it is open from all sides.

Museum :

After all of this i went to museum which is inside red fort boundary i.e. just near to gates of red fort. So After you have visited this fort you can visit museum. This Museum is nice afterall. There are some antiques which were being used in early centuries. There are arms, soldier dress, and some sword and many other too. I also found Swords , knives , shields of soldiers and weapons too. I was surprised at those weapons that they too had those guns and such weapons at that time. These ancient antiques shows how they fought for there country or a region and how they survived in that time for there self respect. It shows how they lived there lfe by facing many wars with their enemies. After all this is a place where you can know many things about history and ancient culture. This is a great historical place.

This is a trip for those also who don't like to know much about history as it has a garden and some places where you can take great pictures. so its not just history , you can learn many things from this place.

When i completed my visit, there were some shops near to entry gate where i bought a cap as i forgot my cap at home. It's cool. isn't it?

This is all i have seen in this fort.

How to reach red fort : 

Reaching to new delhi is easy as it is capital of India so almost all cities are connected directly. It is located in centre of India so you can reach here by source of transportation via bus, train or plane whatever affordable for you.

I reached there by train but as my reservation was not confirm so it was hard to paas that travel time. If planning to visit by train then make sure to book atleast one month before your journey date.

Its also well connected with other major cities and countries by air routes.


It cost me around 45 Rs. I paid 35 for both Fort and Museum and 10 for placing bag in  treasury room.

Attractions : 

  • Museum at Red fort
  • Garden to relax (Inside fort)
