New Delhi, India

Covered in intricate details and scattered with beautiful gardens, the Red Fort is an important piece of Indian history. Built in the 17th century, this fort complex served as the primary residence for the Mughal Emperors until 1857 when Mughal emperor Badadur Shah Zafar was exiled by the British Indian government.  It is surrounded by massive red sandstone walls. The planning and beauty of this complex represent the height of Mughal creativity.
