Delhi’s Red Fort (or ‘Lal Qila’ ) ranks among the most spectacular vestiges of Mughal India. The complex, whose sandstone ramparts enclose a hidden world of palaces, pillared halls, apartments, gardens and shrines, looms at the head of Old Delhi’s main thoroughfare, Chandi Chowk. Its centrepiece is the Diwan-i-Khas (‘Hall of Private Audience’) from where the legendary, jewel-encrusted ‘Peacock Throne’ was removed by the Persian ruler, Nadir Shah, in 1739.
