New Delhi’s Red Fort

 

The Red Fort in New Delhi served as the main residence of the Mughal Emperors. On the Independence day of India, the Prime Minister hoists the Indian “tricolour flag” at the main gate of the fort.

The fort was built between 1639 and 1648 by the architect Lahouri. He used a Indo-Islamic Mughal architecture. Of course the name comes from the use of the red sandstone.
