Lal Qila : Itihaas Ka Saakshi

Producer : Rakesh Tyagi
Script and Voice : Sanjeev Upadhyaya

Around 1600 AD, Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan moved the capital of his empire from Agra to a newly constructed city in Delhi that he called 'Shahjahanabad'. Along with the construction of this new city, he laid the foundations of his palace, the Red Fort or 'Lal Qila'. The fort took nearly a decade to complete. It is considered to be better planned than the Agra Fort.

Red Fort History लाल किला के रहस्य । Seriously Strange | Secrets Of Red Fort

. लाल किले का रहस्य | लाल किले का इतिहास | Red Fort History
लाल किला 1857 तक तकरीबन 200 सालो तक मुगल साम्राज्य का निवास स्थान था। लाल किला / #RedFort दिल्ली में है। मुगल शासनकाल में लाल किला मुख्य किले के रूप में था, ब्रिटिशो के लगभग सभी कार्यक्रम लाल किले में ही होते थे। लाल किले का निर्माण 1648 में पाँचवे मुगल साम्राज्य शाह जहाँ ने अपने महल के रूप में बनवाया था। लाल किला पूरी तरह से लाल पत्थरो का बना होने के कारण उसका नाम लाल किला पड़ा। #lalkila #history #indianhistory
1546 में इस्लाम शाह सूरी द्वारा बनाये सलीमगढ़ किले की तरह ही लाल किले का भी निर्माण किया गया था। इस खुबसूरत किले में रंगमंच की कतारे बनी हुई है जो पानी के चैनल से जुडी हुई है और यह नहर-ए-बहिश्त कहा जाता है। यह किला मुग़ल शासक शाहजहाँ के शासनकाल की रचनात्मकता का प्रतिनिधित्व करता है। मुस्लिम परंपराओ और प्रतिमानों के अनुसार ही इस किले का निर्माण किया गया था। लाल किले में हमें मुस्लिम महलो की प्रतिकृतिया दिखाई देती है, साथ भी लाल किले में हमें पर्शियन परंपराओ की छवि भी दिखाई देती है। किले के बाहर एक मनमोहक गार्डन भी है लेकिन लाल किले में बना गार्डन हमें दिल्ली, राजस्थान, पंजाब, कश्मीर, ब्रज और रोहिलखंड के गार्डन से थोडा अलग दिखाई देता है। सलीमगढ़ किले के साथ ही लाल किले को भी 2007 में यूनेस्को वर्ल्ड हेरिटेज साईट में शामिल किया गया था।

लाल किले की कहानी || History of Red Fort in Hindi || Red Fort || lal kila ||

The Red Fort is a historical fort in the city of Delhi in India. It was the main residence of the emperors of the Mughal dynasty for nearly 200 years, until 1857. It is located in the center of Delhi and houses a number of museums. In addition to accommodating the emperors and their households, it was the ceremonial and political centre of the Mughal state and the setting for events critically impacting the region.[2]

Constructed in 1639 by the fifth Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as the palace of his fortified capital Shahjahanabad,[3] the Red Fort is named for its massive enclosing walls of red sandstone and is adjacent to the older Salimgarh Fort, built by Islam Shah Suri in 1546. The imperial apartments consist of a row of pavilions, connected by a water channel known as the Stream of Paradise (Nahr-i-Bihisht). The fort complex is considered to represent the zenith of Mughal creativity under Shah Jahan,[citation needed] and although the palace was planned according to Islamic prototypes, each pavilion contains architectural elements typical of Mughal buildings that reflect a fusion of Timurid and Persian traditions. The Red Fort’s innovative architectural style, including its garden design, influenced later buildings and gardens in Delhi, Rajasthan, Punjab, Kashmir, Braj, Rohilkhand and elsewhere.[2]

The fort was plundered of its artwork and jewels during Nadir Shah's invasion of the Mughal Empire in 1747. Most of the fort's precious marble structures were subsequently destroyed by the British following the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857.[4] The forts's defensive walls were largely spared, and the fortress was subsequently used as a garrison.[4] The Red Fort was also the site where the British put the last Mughal Emperor on trial before exiling him to Rangoon in 1858.[5]

Every year on the Independence day of India (15 August), the Prime Minister hoists the Indian tricolour flag at the main gate of the fort and delivers a nationally-broadcast speech from its ramparts.[6]

It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007 as part of the Red Fort Complex.

पुराने किले का इतिहास || Purana Qila History in Hindi || Facts about Purana Qila | Purana kila Delhi

Purana Qila' (Old Fort) is one of the oldest forts in Delhi. The present citadel at Purana Qila was believed to have been built under Humayun and Afghan Sher Shah Suri (‘The Lion King’). Excavations point to traces from the 3rd century BC, the pre-Mauryan period. The first two rounds of excavations — in 1954-55 and 1969-72 — by then ASI director, BB Lal, had unearthed traces of PGW under the mound. At the time, Lal had embarked on a mission to excavate various sites mentioned in the Mahabharata text and had found such traces as a common feature at all those sites.[1]

On the basis of PGW, which archaeologically belongs to the 6th-12th century BC, ASI led by director BB Lal concludes that Purana Qila is the Pandava kingdom of Indraprastha, estimating 900 BCE as the period of the war recounted in the epic.

Excavations carried out by Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) at Purana Quila in 1954-55 (trial trenches)[2] and again 1969-1973 by its Director, B B Lal, have unearthed Painted Grey Ware dating to 1000 BCE.

The fort was the inner citadel of the city of Din Panah during Humayun's rule who renovated it in 1533 and completed five years later.[3] The founder of the Suri Dynasty, Sher Shah Suri, defeated Humayun in 1540, naming the fort Shergarh;[4] he added several more structures in the complex during his five-year reign. Purana Qila and its environs flourished as the sixth city of Delhi.

When Edwin Lutyens designed the new capital of British India, New Delhi, in the 1920s, he aligned the central vista, now Rajpath, with Purana Qila.[5] During the Partition of India, in August 1947 the Purana Qila along with the neighbouring Humayun's Tomb, became the site for refuge camps for Muslims migrating to newly founded Pakistan. This included over 12,000 government employees who had opted for service in Pakistan, and between 150,000–200,000 Muslim refugees,[6] who swarmed inside Purana Qila by September 1947, when Indian government took over the management of the two camps. The Purana Qila camp remained functional till early 1948, as the trains to Pakistan waited till October 1947 to start.[7]

In the 1970s, the ramparts of Purana Qila were first used as a backdrop for theatre, when three productions of the National School of Drama were staged here: Tughlaq, Andha Yug and Sultan Razia, directed by Ebrahim Alkazi. In later decades it has been the venue of various important theatre productions, cultural events, and concerts.[8] Today, it is the venue of a daily sound and light presentation after sunset, on the history of the Seven Cities of Delhi, from Indraprastha through New Delhi....

आगरा के किले का इतिहास || Agra Fort History in Hindi || Facts about Agra Fort in Hindi

Agra Fort is a historical fort in the city of Agra in India. It was the main residence of the emperors of the Mughal Dynasty until 1638, when the capital was shifted from Agra to Delhi. The Agra fort is a UNESCO World Heritage site.[1] It is about 2.5 km northwest of its more famous sister monument, the Taj Mahal. The fort can be more accurately described as a walled city.

After the First Battle of Panipat in 1526, Babur stayed in the fort, in the palace of Ibrahim Lodi. He later built a baoli (step well) in it. His successor, Humayun, was crowned in the fort in 1530. He was defeated at Bilgram in 1540 by Sher Shah Suri. The fort remained with the Suris till 1555, when Humayun recaptured it. Adil Shah Suri's general, Hemu, recaptured Agra in 1556 and pursued its fleeing governor to Delhi where he met the Mughals in the Battle of Tughlaqabad.[2]


Diwan-i-Aam

Sheesh Mahal, Agra Fort:The effect produced by lighting candles in Sheesh Mahal, Agra Fort.
Realising the importance of its central situation, Akbar made it his capital and arrived in Agra in 1558. His historian, Abul Fazl, recorded that this was a brick fort known as 'Badalgarh'. It was in a ruined condition and Akbar had it rebuilt with red sandstone from Barauli area Dhaulpur district, in Rajasthan.[citation needed] Architects laid the foundation and it was built with bricks in the inner core with sandstone on external surfaces. Some 4,000 builders worked on it daily for eight years, completing it in 1573.[3]

It was only during the reign of Akbar's grandson, Shah Jahan, that the site took on its current state. Shah Jahan built the beautiful Taj Mahal in the memory of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Unlike his grandfather, Shah Jahan tended to have buildings made from white marble. He destroyed some of the earlier buildings inside the fort to make his own.[citation needed]

At the end of his life, Shah Jahan was deposed and restrained by his son, Aurangzeb, in the fort. It is rumoured that Shah Jahan died in Muasamman Burj, a tower with a marble balcony with a view of the Taj Mahal.[citation needed]

The fort was under the Jat rulers of Bharatpur for 13 Years. In the fort they built the Ratan Singh ki haweli.The fort was invaded and captured by the Maratha Empire in the early 18th century. Thereafter, it changed hands between the Marathas and their foes many times. After their catastrophic defeat at Third Battle of Panipat by Ahmad Shah Abdali in 1761, Marathas remained out of the region for the next decade. Finally Mahadji Shinde took the fort in 1785. It was lost by the Marathas to the British during the Second Anglo-Maratha War, in 1803.[citation needed]

The fort was the site of a battle during the Indian rebellion of 1857, which caused the end of the British East India Company's rule in India, and led to a century of direct rule of India by Britain.
