Delhi's historic spot Red Fort generally remains closed on Mondays but on December 11, it will open its doors to tourists. The UNESCO World Heritage Site, which draws a large number of tourists from across India and abroad, will be open as the India Art, Architecture and Design Biennale (IAADB) is held here till December 15. It was inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi on Friday. While the biennale will end on December 15, exhibitions related to it will continue till March 31 next year. Red Fort, commissioned by Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan, is considered an architectural marvel and a veritable landmark and symbol of Delhi.

The Biennale has various art workshops, art bazaars, panel discussion forums, heritage walk programmes, a student biennale named Samunnati and more as part of it. Samunnati lets students interact with renowned professionals, engage with others from the field, get a platform for their works and explore the world of heritage displays, workshops and installations outside of their curriculum. "Indian Art, Architecture and Design Biennale is must visit for those passionate about art and culture,” PM Modi wrote on his page on X. He also inaugurated the Aatmanirbhar Bharat Centre for Design as part of the programme.
