The largest of old Delhi's monuments is the Lal Quila or the Red Fort, whose thick red sandstone walls, bulging with turrets and bastions, have withstood the vagaries of time and nature. Its walls extend upto two kilometres and vary in height from 18 metres on the river side to 33 metres on the city side. Even today the Lal Quila is an eloquent reminder of the glory of the Mughal era and its magnificence simply leaves one awestruck. It is still a calm haven of peace which helps one to break away from the frantic pace of life outside the walls of the Fort and transports the visitor to another realm of existence.
