Tour and Stay Sights

Sights

Red Fort

Sights - Red Fort

Built as a Palace by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan between 1638-1648. Its name comes from its massive red sandstone walls - each side is 1.5 miles long. The site was constructed as the focal point for the Emporer's new capital, Shahjahanabad, which he moved from Agra. The fort stands alongside the Yumana River, which in its heyday fed moats surrounding the walls. The fort is a wonderful place to visit due its stunning exuberant architecture and intricate design, typical of the Mughal era.

Taj Mahal

Sights - Taj Mahal

One of the world's most recognizable buildings, the mausoleum built by Shah Jahan in memory of his favourite wife is considered to be the best example of Mughal architecture, thought to be a blend of Persian, Turkish, Indian, and Islamic architectural styles. It was built using materials from throughout India and Asia - including twenty eight types of precious and semi-precious stones including turquoise from Tibet and jade and crystal from China. Twenty thousand workers and over 1000 elephants were used in the construction. The building fell into disrepair until restoration work in the early 20th century, and in 1983 became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Jaipur

Sights - Jaipur

The best-known area in Jaipur is the 'Pink City' - built in 1792, and made the site of the new capital by the emperor Jai Singh II. It is unique among Indian cities for its wide and even streets, which are laid out in a grid pattern in accordance with Hindu architectural theory.
