Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Red Fort, Netaji Subhash Marg, New Delhi 110002 India

The vast stretch of red under the sun-warmed skies of Delhi is what defines the medieval madness of the city. The very sight of the bulwark speaks of its impregnable strength and stoic resistance of an old guardian. Spread over 256 acres overlooking the Yamuna with its massive enclosing walls the fort is rained in red and has stood the test of time and the anti-colonial defiance. Red Fort or Lal Qila is a representation of the cultural, political and architectural majesty of the Mughal Empire inking the Indian historical landscape with rich sundry hues.

History of Red Fort
The Qila-e-Mubarak or the blessed fort was home to Shah Jahan the Mughal Emperor and the grandson of Akbar, the greatest ruler the Mughal Empire ever saw. Not so different from Akbar, and having taken enough cues from him, Shah Jahan chartered his own course with élan. He was responsible for erecting some of the glorious structures of the time which are still identified as the most exquisite known for their sheer magnificence and the arduous journeys behind them. The Red Fort came to the being after Shah Jahan moved his capital from Agra and left his residence at the Agra Fort. He constructed a new walled city – Shahjahanbad naming it after himself and built a new residence, the Red Fort. It took a decade to complete the Red Fort which served as a residence to the Mughal rulers for nearly 200 years. The chief architect of the Red Fort was Ustad Ahmed Lahauri who started the construction in 1638 and completed in 1648.

The red in the Red Fort was always not present. What many don’t know is that the edifice was painted red by the British only after the limestone from which the building was originally built in started to chip off. The name Red Fort finds its roots in the British era after they painted it in red to preserve it and thus rechristened it to Red Fort which then had its translation to Lal Qila among the land of the people.

With the passing away of Shah Jahan the fate of the fort started to plummet as well. The successive rulers turned out to be defenceless against the rampages and pillages that followed. The Turk ruler Nadir Shah attacked the fort in 1739. The last Mughal ruler to have lived in the Red Fort was Bahadur Shah Zafar whose rule wasn’t so significant and the title was mere titular. Later when the British seized power and control, he was exiled to then Burma known as Myanmar now. And that was the end of the Mughal dynasty.

The Red Fort Architecture
Standing proud on an area of 250 acres the Red Fort boasts of over 2 km of defensive walls adorned by bastions and turrets. The fort resembles an octagon and is decorated by marble, domes and flower engravings. Apparently the Kohinoor was part of the famous peacock throne. The architectural, design and colour sensibilities of the fort set a rare specimen of the Mughal zeitgeist of the time. The Red Fort complex comprises the Red Fort and the Salimgarh Fort built in 1546 by Islam Shah Suri. The two gates of Red Fort: Lahori and Delhi Gates were built for the public whereas the Khizrabad Gate was what the emperor used. The Lahori Gate remains the main entrance to the Red Fort even today.

On entering the Diwan-i-‘Am, you will see the Naubat-Khana (Drum house). It is where the musicians played during ceremonial events. The huge hall has nine arches. The royal throne would be placed in the hall on the decorated alcove. Diwan-i-Khas is where the legendary peacock throne was said to be, before it was looted by Nadir Shah. The Red Fort also has Mumtaz Mahal which is now a museum, Rang Mahal, Khwabgah or the sleeping chambers, the Hammam or the royal bathing area with a garden without which any Mughal architecture is incomplete.

Red Fort Political Significance
A site of protests, campaigns and political turbulence, Red fort was where the people marched in great number to show their solidarity for a nation they wished to call home. The fort has witnessed tears, sweat and blood during the Indian freedom struggle. The day after the iconic “Tryst with Destiny” speech delivered by Nehru, the first Prime Minister of the independent state addressed the vehement crowds at the Red Fort and raised the Indian flag – a symbol of the new found freedom ushering in an era of liberation, belonging and existence. An era, that was to see India becoming the biggest democracy in the world. And the tradition continues.

Every Independence Day, the existing Prime Minister delivers a speech to the waiting nation from the red rampart. The old walls of the fort have seen it all. The fort has been a witness to the long-winded spiels of the leaders while the sound of the applause from the ebullient masses cheering for a future laced with hope has reverberated through its walls with every passing year. To this day the fort soaks in the spirit of India and sees the prime minister hoisting the Tricolour with the skies filled with the colours of the flag. It’s very much a part of the Indian culture and has a special context in the ceremonial ethos of the country and its people. It’s synonymous with our freedom standing tall as a guard of honour greeting the new leaders and people who come to visit it every year to remember the struggles we had to go though to achieve the freedom.
