I liked the inside of the Red Fort but the surrounding area is somewhat have to brace the traffic and crowd.

I'd skip the evening light show in Red Fort, Old Delhi. Nothing special.

Delhi's Red Fort has interesting history. The mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, who built the Taj mahal had the Red Fort build as well. At the time of British occupation of India, British Army occupied the Red Fort. Then Indian Army took over following India's independence. Interestingly, Indian Army occupied the Old Delhi's Red Fort until 2003, at which time it was transferred to the government department of tourism.

Wear comfortable shoes! Walking in Red Fort will take a long time. Agreed, light show not too exciting. If enough time, check out the crazy Chandni Chowk.

Its a beautiful place to visit. Nice little shopping area as well. Beware of the pickpockets and skip the evening light show.

Jesse, you are right. Red Fort covers a large area and you want to be prepared for the heat in Delhi with good shoes, lots of water unless you are going in winter.

I wonder if there would be an old delhi without the red fort.
Rishi Chugh - March 29, 2007
Yes, Old Delhi pretty much developed around Red Fort.

Hey, I was just researching some facts about the red fort for more info to add to this project I'm doing. And I just came across this video. I have been wondering how many rooms are actually in the red fort and wondering if anyone can tell me, thanks Ella.
