Description: So called on account of the stone from which it was built. It was erected in 1650 on the banks of the Jumna river by Shah Jahan who made Delhi his new capital. The fort encloses several palaces, all in marble. The pink sand-stone gates of the forst are embellished with delicate floral decorations. The Jumna has since changed its course and the fort remains isolated in the fields, its moats no longer watered by the river.
