“Unable to visit because of security”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

Could only see it from the road, and could not stop because police moved us on. Very disappointing.

It is a wonderful place to see but we could only see parts of it due to a tight schedule limitations.

“Lal Quila”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

The RED FORT is a place one must visit while in Delhi. Ofcourse one has to walk quiet a distance, but it is really worth it.

“Probably better from the outside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

It is a pretty impressive fort from the outside but there isn't a lot to see inside. On no account go to the Light and Sound Show which is excruciatingly boring. No comparison to the fort in Agra.
