The fort was built between 1639 and 1648 by the Mogul Ruler, Shah Jahan. The fort is a World Heritage site. We also headed across the street to the large Jain Temple in Chandi Chowk. The Temple is famous for its bird hospital where birds of all types are brought for recovery. The Jains are known for their reverence of nature and protection of all living creatures.
