Red Fort is a historic fort in the city of Delhi in India. It was the main residence of the emperors of the Mughal dynasty for nearly 200 years, until 1856. It is located in the center of Delhi and houses a number of museums. In addition to accommodating the emperors and their households, it was the ceremonial and political center of the Mughal state and the setting for events critically impacting the region.
Constructed in 1639 by the fifth Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as the palace of his fortified capital Shahjahanabad, the Red Fort is named for its massive enclosing walls of red sandstone and is adjacent to the older Salimgarh Fort, built by Islam Shah Suri in 1546 AD. The imperial apartments consist of a row of pavilions, connected by a water channel known as the Stream of Paradise (Nahr-i-Bihisht). The fort complex is considered to represent the zenith of Mughal creativity under Shah Jahan, and although the palace was planned according to Islamic prototypes, each pavilion contains architectural elements typical of Mughal buildings that reflect a fusion of Timurid and Persian traditions. The Red Fort’s innovative architectural style, including its garden design, influenced later buildings and gardens in Delhi, Rajasthan, Punjab, Kashmir, Braj, Rohilkhand and elsewhere.
Jama Masjid (جَامع مَسجد), also spelled Jame Mosque, Jami Masjid, Jameh Mosque, Jamia Masjid, or Jomeh Mosque, refers to the main mosque, of a town, city, area or village, which hosts the special Friday noon prayers and, in case there is no allocated open space (Musallah or Eidgah) available or nearby, the Eid prayers. These are sometimes called Congregational mosques or Friday mosques. The term “Jama Masjid” or “Jame Masjid” comes from Persian Masjed-e Jame (مسجد جامع), from Arabic: مَسْجِد جَامِع, translit. Masjid Jāmi‘, meaning “congregational mosque” (in Arabic, the term is simplified to “جَامِع Jāmi‘“). In non-Arab Muslim nations, the word jāmi‘ (“that which gathers, congregates or assembles”) is often, though erroneously, conflated with another word from the same root, jumu‘ah (Arabic: جُمُعَة “assembly, gathering”), a term which is used for the Friday noon prayers (Arabic: صَلَاة الْجُمُعَة, translit. Ṣalāṫ al-Jumu‘ah literally “prayer of assembly”) and the day itself (Arabic: يَوْم الْجُمُعَة, translit. Yawm al-Jumu‘ah literally “Day of Assembly”). This is due to the fact that the Friday prayers (or Jumu’ah prayers), which require congregations, are only held in congregational mosques, usually the main mosque or central mosque, and hence they are also sometimes known as Friday mosques.
Gurudwara Bangla Sahib Or SIS Ganj Sahib Gurudwara
Gurudwara Bangla Sahib (About this soundlisten) is one of the most prominent Sikh gurdwara, or Sikh house of worship, in Delhi, India and known for its association with the eighth Sikh Guru, Guru Har Krishan, as well as the pool inside its complex, known as the “Sarovar.” It was first built as a small shrine by Sikh General Sardar Bhagel Singh in 1783, who supervised the construction of nine Sikh shrines in Delhi in the same year, during the reign of Mughal Emperor, Shah Alam II.
Spice Market Delhi – Khari Baoli
Khari Baoli is a street in Delhi, India known for its wholesale grocery and Asia’s largest wholesale spice market selling all kinds of spices, nuts, herbs and food products like rice and tea. Operating since the 17th century, the market is situated near the historic Delhi Red Fort, on the Khari Baoli Road adjacent to Fatehpuri Masjid at the western end of the Chandni Chowk, and over the years has remained a tourist attraction, especially those in the heritage circuit of Old Delhi.
Kinari Bazar – Local Market
As the name suggests, Kinari Bazaar is the wholesale market for fancy laces, borders and tassles. Additionally, you will find all kinds of beads and bead work items, fancy paper items including envelopes for gifting, adornments for idols and festival decorations, and much more. In short, Kinari Bazaar is a designer’s paradise. You will routinely find many design students and professionals that are hoping to find unique laces, borders, bead work and other accessories to realize their design vision or to simply unleash their creative juices. Kinari Bazaar also happens to be a popular jaunt with tourists for a lot of funky silver jewellery and accessories that is so very affordable. Since Kinari Bazaar fuses into Dariba Kalan (the main market for gems and jewellery) as you walk eastwards, there is a unique fusion of shops for beads and decorative accessories, a sheer feast for the eyes if you are able to ward off the temptation to pick up a pair of jhumkees (earrings) or ghunghroo laden payals (anklets with bells). Avoid this area close to major festivals such as Diwali and Janmashtami, also around the wedding season since the crowds are unmanageable and experience is not everyone’s cup of tea.
The Lotus Temple, located in Delhi, India, is a Bahá’í House of Worship that was dedicated in December 1986, costing $10 million.

The building is composed of 27 free-standing marble-clad “petals” arranged in clusters of three to form nine sides, with nine doors opening onto a central hall with a height of slightly over 40 metres and a capacity of 2,500 people. The Lotus Temple has won numerous architectural awards and has been featured in many newspaper and magazine articles. A 2001 CNN report referred to it as the most visited building in the world.
