Our escorted tour's manager brought us to this very popular immense historical fort that is reddish from the stone/clay. There are several sections and gardens that could take several hours to visit, so our guide hit the highlights. Nearby is a very popular shopping bazaar...More

This is virtually situated at Old Delhi. Indian national celebrations are held here. This was another great construction by Moghal emperors. You can walk around but it will be useful if you could have a knowledgeable guide. If you have sometime in Delhi worth a...More

It is definitely an important site to visit but when we entered most parts were under restoration and the site was not receiving good care

This is worth a visit....even the journey here through old Delhi is an experience. I managed to get a local guide to show me around for 200 rupees.

This is a sad, rundown historic attraction. The majority was under construction during my visit. The grounds are dry and virtually nonexistent. The military museum is a 1950s weapons behind glass sort of thing. The souvenir market as you enter the Fort was actually decent....More
