10 sites in India that got UNESCO World Heritage tag before Mumbai Art Deco buildings

In 2007, Delhi’s majestic Red Fort complex, or the Lal Qila, got the UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Built in the 17th century, the palace fort of Shahjahanabad -- the new capital of Emperor Shah Jahan -- is a symbol of Mughal rule in India. The massive enclosing walls made of red sandstone gives the fort its name, the Red Fort, which is adjacent to the older Salimgarh fort built by Islam Shah Suri in 1546. Together, they form the Red Fort complex. The planning of the palace fort and its architectural style complete with its gardens influenced many buildings and gardens that came up later in Rajasthan, Delhi, Agra and other places.
