Mahipal Chouhan

Red Fort, a historical site in Delhi, was commissioned by Mughal emperor Shahjahan.

Construction of the Red Fort occurred between 1638 and 1648.

The fort's map was designed by Ahmed Lahauri.

It is strategically situated on the Yamuna River's banks to deter enemies.

The fort's location made it challenging for adversaries to launch attacks.

Surrounded by the Yamuna on three sides, the fort offered natural defense.

Shahjahan's choice of location ensured easy access to water for the fort's inhabitants.

The Red Fort stands as a testament to Mughal architectural brilliance and strategic planning.
