Red Fort Complex Diwan-i-Aam, Delhi, India - A UNESCO World Heritage Site

The Diwan-i-Am in the Red Fort of Delhi was an open open court for junta (public) - a large hall where the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan (ruled between 1628 to 1656) met his junta or general public and heard their grievances.

The Diwan-i-Am front hall is open on three sides divided into many square bays by a system of columns which support the engraved arches displaying high aesthetics and excellent craftsmanship. Once the hall had its ceiling and columns painted with gold.

There is a marble dais right below the throne which was used by the erstwhile prime minister or the wazir to receive public petitions. A silver railing separated the junta from the courtiers and a gold railing separated the emperor from the courtiers. How to reach the Red Fort Complex in Delhi India?
