information which was given to me by my guide. I somehow liked every bit of

The massive Red Fort
( Lal Qila) situated in
Old Delhi is a reminder of the magnificent power of the Mughal emperors. The
fort's main gate, the Lahore Gate, is one of the symbolic focal points of
the modern India and attracts a major crowd each Independence Day.
The great mosque of Old Delhi, situated just opposite to the Red Fort is
the largest in India, with a courtyard capable of holding 25,000 devotees.
It was built in 1644 and was the last in the series of architectural gifts
of Shah Jahan, the 5th Mughal emperor.
The magnificent buildings in this complex date from the beginning of Muslim
rule in India. The Qutub Minar
itself is a
rising 73m / 240ft high stone tower of victory that was started in 1193,
just after the defeat of the last Hindu kingdom in Delhi. At its base is
Quwwat-ul-Islam Masjid (Might of Islam Mosque), India's first.
" I love architectural site and in Delhi I came across not one nor
two but many. The most I liked was Red fort. It was truly an awesome site
reflecting the Mughal architecture. I also happened to attend the Sound and
Light show which happens in the evening ." added Lucy
