“Lal Quila” also known as the Red Fort, derived its name from the red sandstone used in its construction. A site of memories, the Red Fort had witnessed significant episodes in India’s history. It was built in 1618 and once housed the Mughal emperors. Under the British, the Fort became a criminal court.
