HD Old Delhi


| May 15, 2020

Shah Jahan founded the city of Shahjahanabad, now referred to as Old Delhi, in 1648. The famous Red Fort in the heart of Old Delhi was once the most opulent fort of the Mughal empire and houses the Diwan-i-Am (Hall of Public Audience) and the Diwan-i-Khas (Hall of Private Audience). Opposite the fort is the Jama Masjid, one of the largest mosques in the world, built by Shah Jahan to dominate his city. The Raj Ghat is the location of Gandhi's cremation. Share:
