Highly overrated just like the light and sound show. The show is too boring. Red fort is not properly taken care of.

It's a good monument and worth visiting. But most of its area is closed for general citizens. Otherwise a nice monument. They have a museum as well right at the entrance where lot of freedom fighters weapons, clothes and armors are kept.
