India 2011 – Red Fort

July 7, 2011

(Part of my ongoing India travelogue… if you want to start from the beginning – check out this post: India 2011)

Red Fort

The Red Fort is yet another impressive monument erected by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan (Taj Mahal and Jama Masjid) – the fellow certainly got around!

Red Fort

It’s a staggeringly large complex of many different buildings surrounded by a massive red sandstone wall, which is then surrounded by a moat! It’s said that the Red Fort is the culmination of Mughal architecture, and it’s easy to see why. Just take a look at all the different textures, patterns and colours.

Red Fort is incredibly popular with Indian tourists, which meant I got to do more of my favourite people watching.
