The fate of the Red Fort after 1857

, Hazrat-E-Dilli

If you’ve seen Red Fort recently you would wonder where these paintings are from!

Almost 52 buildings inside the Red Fort broken by British in aftermath of 1857 : what we see now is 20% of the buildings only.

This can be clearly seen in the painting of the Red Fort where there’s not an inch of available space

I was quite heartbroken at the decay but then the resources at their disposal are not enough to undo the willful damage of 160 years.
