SOUND & LIGHT SHOW  - RED FORT
 

About Sound & Light Show


The eventful history Red Fort has been witness to is brought out as a sound and light show every evening on the ramparts of the Red Fort. For those desirous of delving into Delhi's glorious and tumultuous past, Delhi Tourism puts on a spectacular sound and light show at the Purana Qila bringing 5,000 years old history of the city come alive. Special effects combine with the unique ambience to make this show a hauntingly unforgettable experience. The eternal Jamuna bears witness to the glorious and tumultuous history of Delhi.

 

It throws light on a history, which begins with the creation of Indraprastha by the Pandavas and the transformation of this barren gift of the Kauravas into an idyllic haven. This show unfolds the history of Delhi. One is transported centuries back in time to witness Draupadi being reduced to a dasi of Hastinapur, the gallant Prithviraj Chauhan gallooping away with Samyogita, Sher Shah Suri being blown to bits by misfired cannon, the legendary Razia Sultan, Humanyun tragically tumbling down the steps of his library, Bahadur Shah Zafar surrendering to the British. This is the story of the city of cities - Delhi; where a great empire rose and fell before the dawn of history; citadels of emperors appeared and disappeared. But, combined and integrated into one, these new cities have always been called Delhi and Delhi has always been intrinsically identified with power and imperial sway.

 

These and many more such episodes out of Delhi’s old saga can be relived during this evocative 62 minutes son et lumiere. Advanced technology has made it possible to add special effects, combining with the unique ambiance to make this show a hauntingly unforgettable experience. Shrouded in antiquity, the lofty walls of the Purana Quila, rise on the sire of the ancient city of Indraprastha. It is believed to be the site of the first city of Delhi. The high-rise walls and imposing entrances to the Quila are credited to emperor Sher Shah Suri. Purana Quila, now the site for the sound and light show, has seen centuries of history unfold before it. The show, inaugurated on 2nd October 1996, is perhaps the biggest of its kind in India. The show each in Hindi and English is held after sunset except on days when it rains. The shows, through skillful use of light and sound, bring to life bygone days of Delhi's history from the Mughal period.
