Event Description

Red fort, a unique building of Mughal, built by Shah Jahan in 1638 along the river Yamuna, and this monument took 10 years to build. This fort was designed by Ustad Ahamad Lahouri, who was the main architect of Taj Mahal. After the death of his beloved wife, king went into depression and had no desire to live in Agra or wanted to change the capital of his kingdom; that is why, he built Red Fort in old Delhi. It is believed to have been a copy of Agra Fort. Other things were added to it by his successor, Aurangzeb, who kept his father hostage till his death. After the death of Aurangzeb, the Mughal Empire started facing declination, thereafter; it was plundered by many local rulers, like Jat from Bharatpur, Sikh from Punjab and foreign invaders, such as Nadir Shah or Ahamad Shah Abadali, and British. Owing to its stunning architecture, in 2007, Red Fort has been declared one of the world heritage sites in India by UNESCO.
