Red Fort (Lal Qila) Tours

10 Reviews
Red Fort (Lal Qila)

The UNESCO World Heritage–listed Red Fort (Lal Qila) traces its roots back to the middle of the 17th century, when Mughal Emperor Shahjahan moved his base from Agra to Delhi. For the two centuries that followed, this gargantuan sandstone complex served as the royal residence of the Mughal Empire. Today, it’s one of the city’s most popular attractions, often visited in tandem with nearby Chandni Chowk.

 

The Basics

One of the best-preserved architectural sites in Delhi, the Red Fort provides a fascinating glimpse into the inner workings of India’s former Mughal Empire. Highlights of this octagonal complex include the Diwan-i-Aam, where emperors and prime ministers once addressed the public, plus the Mumtaz Mahal, which hosts a Mughal history museum, complete with six halls full of artifacts ranging from old manuscripts to astronomical tools. Don’t miss the Diwan-i-Khas, a small hall full of decorated archways and topped with regal chhatris (domed canopies).


The Red Fort is a highlight on most group and private sightseeing tours of Old and New Delhi, many of which also include stops at the nearby Chandni Chowk market, India Gate, and the Jama Masjid. Evening tours may include admission to the Red Fort sound and light show along with dinner.


Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Red Fort is huge, spanning over 120 acres (49 hectares). Make sure you set aside at least two hours for your visit.
  • The complex is wheelchair accessible, featuring wide pathways and limited steps.
  • Wear sunscreen and bring a hat or a parasol, as much of the fort is uncovered and open to the elements.
  • The Red Fort is closed on Mondays.

 

How to Get There

The Red Fort is located in bustling Old Delhi, just north of the Jama Masjid, on the western banks of the Yamuna River. It’s right next to the Lal Qila metro station on the Violet Line of the Delhi Metro and about a 10-minute walk from the Old Delhi Railway Station. Most visitors arrive by car or metro or as part of a guided tour.

 

When to Get There

The Red Fort is open throughout the year, Tuesday to Sunday, from sunrise to sunset. The best time to visit is in winter, when the weather is comfortably cool. If your Delhi trip coincides with the sweltering summer season of May and June, consider arriving early in the day when temperatures are at their coolest and crowds are smallest.

Legends & Heritage of Old Delhi Guided Tour

A walking tour to unravel the legends and unique history of this precious heritage corner of Delhi. Whole Old delhi revolves around “Chandni Chowk”. An erstwhhile posh street with canals during Mughal era filled up with running waters & in the night the canal waters used to reflect moonlight. Hence it came to be known as Chandni Chowk, literally meaning moonlight street. It is having the mansions of the Mughal nobility — typical courtyard houses with a grand gateway (deori). After the British occupation of the city, especially during the nineteenth century, the Jain merchants of Delhi prospered in trade and started building havelis, which now form the streetscape of the old city, in their quite deplorable state. The Jain traders re-introduced Rajasthani elements in Delhi’s architecture. The long running verandahs of these havelis, their austere courtyards, and heavily decorated drawing rooms mark a period of socio-cultural transition.
