- An extraordinary sound and light show is organised every evening at Red Fort. Inaugurated on October 2nd, 1996, it is perhaps the biggest of its kind in India. It recreates the events of Indian history particularly related to the fort. Red Fort is believed to be the site of the first city of Delhi. The high rise walls and imposing entrances to the Quila (fort) are credited to emperor Shershah Suri. Massive halogen lights reflected from the mammoth, red sandstone walls and sound effects from hidden speakers evoke such an effect that the show has been a hit with the local crowds as well as the tourist for years. It takes place in Hindi and English for an hour each. Tickets Rs 50 (children Rs. 20).
