LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of Red Fort.
Delhi's own Lal Quila
(Red Fort), completed in 1648 has experienced a variety of
historical events take place within its walls. Built by the Mughal
emperor Shah Jahan as a palace in his then new capital of
Shahjahanbad it was even the headquarters of the Sepoy Mutiny or
First Battle of Indian Independence in the year 1857.
It has housed many members of the Indian
army and their families over the years which took over it after the
Mutiny. Small wonder that there have been unexplained and apparently
paranormal occurrences within.
During stormy nights
horse hooves can be heard thundering through parts of the premises.
There have been ghostly apparitions sighted inside the Deewan-e-Aam.
Unexplained sounds are heard to emanate from a well near the Zeenat
Mahal in the Fort.
No one has reported to
have seen anything but there have been a number of people who have
heard the sounds of a lady's tinkling anklets from around or within
the well. This well was a spot where the corpses of executed
unfortunates were disposed of during the British Rule in India.
With a rich and often
gory history it's quite possible that these tales about the Lal
Quila are not merely tales!
