The resplendent Hindu midday sun (from whom Hindu rulers claim descent) in the arch above flanked by the sacred Hindu letter OM. Below it is the royal Hindu insignia. This proves the hollowness of the claim that Shahjahan commissioned the Red Fort.
These life size elephants flanking the Delhi Gate of Delhi's Red Fort are an unmistakable sign of the fort's Hindu origin. This is one of the proofs that the Red Fort was commissioned by Raja Anangoal (1060 A.D.) and not the Mogul emperor Shahjahan (1639-48) as is erroneously believed. [The fort predates Shahjahan by 600 years, similar to the Taj Mahal.]
