Welcome to India | The Red Fort, Old Delhi, India

This is the Diwan-i-Aam, or Hall of Public Audience. It was used by Mughal emperors in the seventeenth century as a gathering place where they would entertain the requests of their own subjects as well as foreign visitors. The more ornate Hall of Private Audience was reserved for nobles and foreign dignitaries.
