Recommendation by Lemi

The Red Fort was the central seat of power and main residence of Emperors for nearly 200 years! Later into Emperor Shah Jahan’s rule, he transferred the capital of the Mughal Empire from Agra to a sandstone fort in Shahjahanabad (one of Delhi’s past names). Locals call this quarter and its surrounding area Old Delhi. Visit the Diwan-i’Am (Hall of Public Audience) where the throne has remained; and, Diwan-i-Khas (Hall of Private Audience) which holds the Naubat-Khana (Drum House) where musicians played during ceremonies. Its timeless beauty proves that the Mughal Empire’s architectural legacy peaked with Emperor Shah Jahan (the man behind best known for the Taj Mahal)!
