Start your journey in New Delhi by paying a visit to Red Fort, which is otherwise known as Lal Qila. You can get a feel of how the emperors lived during the ancient times at Red Fort because Lal Qila was the actual residence of the ancient Mughal emperors.
Another great architectural monument is the Qutub Minar, the tallest tower in India. Qutub Minar is an Islamic monument that is cleverly structured and made of sandstone and marble.
Drop by the World Heritage site of the Humayun’s Tomb, the resting place of the Mughal emperor. If you love ancient buildings and structures, you should visit Humayun’s Tomb, as it was the inspiration for the Taj Mahal.
