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.

  • 6/7
  • Posted Yesterday
Delhi is a nice place to visit. It have many historic places like lal qila, qutub minar, humayun tomb, lal darwaja, raisina hills and many more. Little bit worried about traffic and pollution level but after few caution you can travel to Delhi. There are many flyovers which are little bit confusing.

Delhi has all what you need. Its DTC buses, Metro trains, historic destinations and most importantly its people. I want those who are reading to visit Delhi for its food, monuments, services and shopping too. If you are going there then you must have some good money in your pocket.

Delhi is perhaps only destination in India where you can find people from every state, every caste and every religion. Delhi have glorious historic place and have a great experience in it. You can watch here Raisina hills (Rashtrapati Bhawan), qutab minar, red fort, lotus temple, jama masjid, etc. CP, also known as heart of delhi, is a great place to shop, dine etc.

"Awesome delhi" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
I visited Delhi many times and every time I found it very new and explorable. There are lots of monuments and shopping places. Specially Red fort, Qutab minar, Humayun's tomb and much watched Ugrasen ki baoli. In shopping Chandni chowk is main attraction its situated in front of red fort. Well you travel in any weather any time but best time to travel is from October to march. So you can feel DILLI KI SARDI.

Keep enjoying Dilwalon ki Dilli.

Delhi is known for its world class status and historical importance. Delhi offers varied variety of entertainment and when you are visiting it with your friends the mazaa gets keep increasing exponentially. For a foodie the street food rocks. Visiting Chandni Chowk, Connaught Place and many more destinations. Connectivity in the cities is very well established with the help of dtc buses, delhi metro and private taxis and auto-rickshaws.

"A city good for shopping"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Delhi is a very pacific place to built high in our life and its best for shopping, you can put your luggage in clock room and do city tour. Lal qila, Jama Masjid are very close. Qutub minar can be visited using metro. If interested in shopping then you can visit chandni chowk, karol bagh, connaught place, lajpat nagar or sarojini nagar. Except sarojini every other place is connected by metro. Mentioned suggestion is not bad.

I would suggest you to visit Humayun's tomb if you haven't visited that before and connaught place area is a little walk away from the station where you can also go for a movie or coffee as well. You can make a short tour of Delhi. I will be in Delhi for a couple of days. First day staying in south delhi at a private residence. 2nd day staying in Karol Bagh with a tour group.

I have read elsewhere that the average readymade salwar Kameez doesn't fit a western woman. And that custom made is the way to go. I'm about 5'-7" and US size 4-6.

I've read that you can go to a tailor that has fabric in house or purchase fabric elsewhere. I just have no idea where to go.

I have visited Delhi for 2 times. Apart from being a collection of historic monuments it also has bunch of Restaurants and hotels. The people around are not so great but the place compensates well for it. The food was just like any part of India has its own and different flavour.

  • 6/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Truly a capital of India. Enjoyed the time spent here. I recommend everyone to at least visit once. My experience at New Delhi was awesome. Best place to hang out. Lal quila is the best place to visit in Delhi. I would like to visit here always. I visited Akshardham Mandir Qutub Minar and many of the historical places here like Red Fort and some others also.
