Delhi Gate

This is part of the Red Fort or Lal Qila as we call it in Hindi. The fort had fourteen gates,with Lahori Gate, Kashmere Gate, Dilli Gate and Ajmeri Gate being the most important and prominent ones. Though the growth of the city over the centuries has lead to the dilapidation of certain parts of the fort, these four still form very important landmarks in the city. This photograph is of a part of Dilli Gate. The gate is just a review of the Fort, which is a grand with its red brick architecture mesmerizing the visitors for ages now.

A great photo and I loved the info you gave with it.
Maybe you'd also like to show some of your photos at trivago. We are an international community of travel enthusiasts and our visitors would surely enjoy your photography.

This is a really impressive structure.

I think that people seem to forget that the present upsurge in prestige for India is not the first time that they have had a global presence worthy of awe.
