A taste of Mougal Era is the best description of Red Fort. It is beautiful and near famous old Delhi railway station. It can be reached by bus or metro. There is a museum housing the wartime euipments of mougals. The place is very big and bright , ideal for sunny winter mornings.

Wonderful site - very large internal grounds with royal residences and courts, but many are closed or restricted. There are nice grounds and walks, Delhi gate has 2 black elephants and Lahore gate has an inexpensive shopping for gifts. Enjoy :-)

Red Fort from a historic perspective one of the most significant and famous forts of India. You might come across a long line. The best way to look at the fort is to hire a ASI guide.

i had a walk outside of it with a lot of leaves flying everywhere but i appreciated the history of the place and really value the 'Palace' kind look of it that i only get to imagine from Disney movies. i hope to visit again and hopefully see the inside of this fort.
