THE RED FORT
This iconic symbol of India is named for its massive red sandstone walls that once enclosed the ancient Mughal Empire. The magnificent structure dates back to 1648 when it was first built as a fortified palace to serve as the capital of the Mughal Emperor, which it remained as for two centuries. Today the historic site serves as a museum, a monument and a place of solitude in the center of the bustling city. It’s a must-see not only for its historical importance, but also the stunning architectural detail.
Built nearly 1,000 years ago, the Qutub Minar is a 72.5 meter minaret—the second tallest in all of India. The tower was built to symbolize victory over Delhi’s last Hindu kingdom. At the base of the minaret you’ll find India’s first Islamic mosque, as well as a few ruins and gardens that decorate the grounds. For a particularly striking experience, time your visit to the attraction at sunset.
Sometimes referred to as ‘the Red Taj Majal’, Humayin’s Tomb was built in the 1500s as a tomb for the second Mughal Emperor of India. The tomb is notable for its intricate Persian details, for being the first garden-tomb of its kind in India, and for inspiring new architectural innovations that would eventually lead to the construction of the breathtakingly beautiful Taj Majal.
The Lotus Temple, or the Baha’i House of Worship, lays in stark contrast to the number of ancient complexes that dot New Delhi. The temple was designed to resemble a lotus flower and consists of 27 remarkable marble petals. The architectural feat is always a site to behold, but the Lotus Temple is exceptionally striking when glowing against the dark night sky.
