The Wonder of India - Red Fort - Delhi

Red Fort, Delhi was laid on the banks of the Yamuna River in the 17th century. The Red Fort also known as Lal Qil'ah or Lal Qila was the made by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. This is known as the shajha’s new capital, Shahjahanabad, the seventh Muslim city in the Delhi. The Great emperor of Mughal Shajahan had built it with the desire of spreading the Mughal power of success between 1638 and 1648. This is not right to say Monument for it, it is more like a small city of mughals. The fort is contentment example of one’s brilliant minds imagination.

The fort has two main entrances – one is a Delhi Gate and another is a Lahore Gate. The entrance of Delhi Gate leads to Delhi's most famous and crowded place, Chandni Chowk. The shajha had created this small city when he moved his capital from Agra to Delhi. The Red Fort gets its name from the hefty wall of huge red sandstone that tells us its four sides. The red fort stands at the eastern edge of Shahjahanabad.

The fort lies along the Yamuna River, which fed the fosse that surround most of the wall. The design and esthetics of the Red Fort represent the elevation of Mughal imaginativeness, originality and zeal of power which prevailed during kingdomship of Shah Jahan. Inside the fort there are many small museums which include artifacts related to the independence as well the Mughal period.

The Red Fort was originally known as "Qila-i-Mubarak" which means “the blessed fort”, because it was the residence of the royal family.

The Fort has the Diwan-i-Am or the Hall for Public Audiences, where the Emperor would sit to hear the complaints and problem of the common people. There is another place as Diwan-i-Khas which is the hall of Private Audiences, where the Emperor held private meetings. The Rang Mahal or the 'Palace of Colours' was the house of the Emperor's wives and mistresses and holds a spectacular Lotus shaped fountain, made out of a single piece of marble. The palace was embellish with excellent paintings, gold bordered projections, variegation of mirrors and the ceiling was made with gold and silver which reflected in a central pool and gives an elegant look.

It took almost took nine years to build this indomitable bastion and it got accomplished on 16th April 1648. It is said that it got an expenditure of about one crore rupees, an enormous sum in those days, its construction. Half of this total squander was spent to build only the exotic palaces within the fort. In short if we describe the Red Fort then it is an perfect paradigm of intelligence of our kings and the Indian rich heritage.
