#HISTORY
In 1638, the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan moved the capital of his empire from #Agra to a newly constructed city in #Delhi that he called Shahjahanabad.

Along with the construction of this new city, he laid the foundations of his palace, the Red Fort. This massive walled citadel with red sandstone walls took nearly a decade to complete.

This fort was the seat of the Mughal Empire for around 200 years, until it fell into British hands.
