From the city’s believed connection to the Mahabharata Yuga to Chauhan dynasty, Mughal Empire, and British era, Delhi has witnessed the abundance of cultural evolution and has withheld a momentum in this. While this historically important city has maintained its heritage unambiguously, the people have managed to keep a harmonious balance between ancient ages and modernization in the capital of India.

Though there are many places to visit in Delhi, some of the places that you should not skip are given here:

Lal Qila

Situated in Old Delhi, Lal Qila or Delhi’s Red Fort is the pride of the Mughal empire and their history. Constructed using red sandstones, Lal Qila consists of the blend of European, Persian and Indian styles of architecture. The fort was built by Shahjahan in 1648 and was designed by the architect Ustad Ahmad Lahauri. Every year on the occasion of Independence day, India’s honourable Prime Minister hoists the National Flag of India and delivers a speech from Lal Qila only.

The gigantic fort is divided into different pavilions and sections, every one of which was used for a dedicated purpose. Your visit proves to be incomplete without attending the impressive music and sound show which mostly describes the Mughal Empire and its Royal history. This UNESCO’s World Heritage site is aligned to the Yamuna river and was not just important to Mughal Empire but it also has significance to Indian history.

Later on, another memorial called Amar Jawan Jyoti was added in 1971 to remind the nation of soldiers who sacrificed their lives in the Indo-Pakistan War. The gate has epigraphs of 13,300 names of Indian soldiers, servicemen, and UK officials. The eternal flame burns throughout the year.
