The Lal Kot ,  means the Red Fort is so named thanks to the red sandstone used to built this historic landmark of Delhi.

Mughal emperor Shah Jahan started its construction in 1638 CE, during the peak of the Mughal rule in India. However the events that followed in his life, didn't allow him to rule from the Red Fort.

His son Aurangzeb imprisoned Shah Jahan in the Agra Fort, before Shah Jahan moved his capital from Agra to Delhi. Ironically it was Aurangzeb to rule the Mughal India from Red Fort, the only Mughal emperor to do so.
