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.

"Its for food and monument lovers" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 days ago
Old Delhi is must place for food lover if you are planing for Delhi then must do visit Channi Chowk specially if you are a non vegetarian. You will get chance here to visit great monument like Lal Kila and my favourite Qutub Minar. Also the best thing about the place is distance between Delhi and Agra using Delhi-Agra express-way you could easily visit Taj Mahal (wonder) symbol of love and return to Delhi on the same day.

"Overall a must go place in India" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Last week, I was off to Delhi, the capital of India. Some of the places that I love mentioning here are : First of all, the Red Fort, which was once the residence of the Mughal emperors is one of the best examples of Mughal architecture. We visited a lot of structures inside it and they were all magnificent. Secondly, the Select City Mall which is the largest mall of Delhi. I loved it, it was something that Delhi can boast of. Moreover, Akshardham Temple, Lotus Temple, India Gate are equally sites for a must visit.

My purpose of visit to Delhi is stay is spend holidays with my family. We visit Akshardam temple, India gate, Indraprastha park and chandni chowk. Akshardam temple was awesome and I enjoyed the movie and fountains.. At India gate me and my family go to picnic... We made some shopping from chandni-chowk at best prices of Delhi. Food was delicious. Most of the time I felt excited to see new things in Delhi. My advice to travellers is that if you really want to enjoy your holidays or vacations go for Delhi.
