About Delhi

Delhi

Delhi, the capital of India, is located in north India, surrounded by Uttar Pradesh and Haryana on three sides, straddling the river Yamuna. Administratively, it is a Union Territory, called the National Capital Region, but it is also partially a state, having been given its own legislative assembly in 1991. In addition there are the closely linked satellite towns of Gurgaon and Faridabad in Haryana and NOIDA and Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh.

 

Contemporary Delhi includes all the sites that had been the capitals of North Indian empires for a thousand years from the many dynasties collectively called the Delhi Sultanate (1206-1526), to the Mughal Empire (1526-1857), to the British colonialists who made it their capital in 1912. It was declared independent India's capital in 1947.

 

Several monuments are evidence of this history. Among them: the Qutb Minar (12th-beginning of 13th century) and Humayun's Tomb (1570) both World Heritage Sites; the Mughal citadel Red Fort (1648); India's largest mosque, the Jama Masjid; the British-built India Gate and the planned and green area of British New Delhi, now holding political and bureaucratic residences, the Indian Parliament and President's House. In fact, the Archaeological Survey of India recognizes some 175 monuments in Delhi as heritage sites. Thus, Delhi often forms a visitor's Golden Triangle with Agra (200 kms away) and Jaipur (250 kms away), to which it is very well connected.

 

Delhi is also a shopper's hub with the centrally located Connaught Place market, South Extension, and many malls all over town, especially in Gurgaon. All big hospitality chains have hotels here, and restaurant and bars abound.

 

Delhi has the Indira Gandhi International Airport and is connected to various cities in India and the world. It is by and large thought of as a hot city and a summer visit, up to humid September, is best avoided.

Delhi our nation's pride is one amongst the most amazing places of the world, blessed with many historical places, beautiful monuments and peaceful atmosphere. And the amazing hotels there gives you an unforgettable experience. Also its mouthwatering street food is ineffably delicious. The Qutib Minar, Hauj Khas Village, Red Fort, Rajghat, India Gate, are some of the palace that are must visit. Amazing to know many monuments here are protected by U. N.

"National Capital with lots of flairs!!" new review

  • 6/7
  • Posted Yesterday
Ah! So, finally, I’m writing about my birth city Delhi which used to be the main attraction for Mugals when they ruled India for five hundred long years. They built up several architectures which have now become heritages including Kutub Minar, Lal Kila and Indian biggest Mosquie Jama Masjid. If you are planning to visist here, take care of place of residence since not all the hotels are good quality over here. If your relatives live here, it is good else only go to pahar ganj and pick a rated one. Rest enjoy the national proud with crowded attractions!

It was a great experience to visit Delhi. I visited several places like red fort, India gate etc. About food, I had tried majority of food starting from street food to lavish hotels. But the best one was tandoori chap. My office work kept me busy during my visit but I some how managed to get time in evenings and tried to cover as much as possible.

The important place in Delhi is "national zoo" and second "achar dham mandir". Both the places are beautiful. It was full masti in Delhi zoo. That was June month and it was too hot. The best time to visit Delhi is in the end of the year.

Nice place to visit as ghummakkad, foodie and shopaholic. I love this place. There so many places to visit as it is not a hill station or similar. Visit garden of five sense and qutub minar, many religious places which are famous in all over in
India. Try world famous food in chandni chowk.
