The Red Fort, or Lal Qila

The Red Fort, usually transcribed into English as Lal Qil'ah or Lal Qila is a 17th century fort complex constructed
by the Mughal emperor Shahjahan in the walled city of Old Delhi. It served as the capital of the Mughal until 1857,
when Mughal emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar was exiled by the British Indian government. The British used it as
a military camp until India was made independent in 1947. It is now a popular tourist site, as well as a powerful
symbol of India's sovereignty.
