"British Military Barracks" Red Fort Tip by MM212

Red Fort, Delhi: 121 reviews and 295 photos


This series of European-style edifices was built by the British after they exiled the Mughal dynasty and took over the Red Fort in 1857. The buildings served as the headquarters and barracks of the British military, and much like the presence of the British soldiers in a Mughal fortress, they were very much out of place amid grand Mughal edifices.
