The Red Fort is a must see on the list of Delhi monuments. Construction began in 1639 when Emperor Shah Jahan, the same man who had the Taj Mahal built in memory of his wife, shifted India’s capital from Agra to Delhi.
A covered bazaar was unusual at that time. It was built so that the women in Shah Jahan’s harem could shop without leaving the fort.
Another structure in the Red Fort Complex is Diwan-i-Khas, the hall of private audiences.
This hall is built in white marble and was where the Emperor would meet with nobles and courtiers.
