Delhi’s most magnificent monument IS the Red Fort
In 1638 Shah Jahan shifted the Mughal Empire’s capital from Agra to Delhi. A new royal palace known as Red Fort or Red Fort Delhi
(Lal Qila) was constructed.
It was begun in 1639 and completed in 1648. The name Red Fort
comes from the massive red sandstone walls that surround it.
The Red Fort has walls extending up to 2 kms. in length with the height varying from 18 mts. on the river side to 33 mts. on the city side.
The Red Fort Delhi has two main entrances, the Delhi Gate and the Lahori Gate. The latter faces Chandni Chowk, the city’s most crowded but diverse market.
Chandni Chowk was once the grandest of the markets in India.
Chandni Chowk (Urdu: چاندنی چوک), originally meaning moonlit square or market, is one of the oldest and busiest markets in Old Delhi, now in central north Delhi, India. Built in 17th century by the great Muslim Emperor of India,Shah Jahan and designed by his daughter Jahan Ara, the market was once divided by canals to reflect moonlight, now closed, yet it still remains one of India’s largest whole sale markets.
India’s desert capital of Jaipur, affectionately referred to as the Pink City because of the pink walls and buildings of the old city, lures visitors with its stunning remnants of a bygone era. The most popular Jaipur attractions are the ancient palaces and forts, with elaborate architecture that serves as a resplendent reminder of their royal heritage.
Amber Fort is justifiably the most significant sight in Jaipur. In fact this is a fortress with numerous palaces inside it.
Man Singh, one of the first war chiefs of the Emperor Akbar, began the construction of a fortress-palace of red and white sandstone in 1592.
Amber Fort was used not only as a defence system from intruders but also served as main residence for the Kachawas rulers.

This is the reason that we are going to Jaipur, to visit Ranthambore National Park.
After we arrive in New Delhi we will be driven to Agra. The home of the Taj Mahal. A place that in my wildest dreams, I never imagined that I would see.
