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.

Very good place to visit. You will get everything here but climate is not good. Summer is too hot, winter is too cold. Best time is Oct to Dec. Best place to shop is cp, many gardens, many temples are here, you can visit here and make your day. Connectivity is so good with metro and buses.

"Great fun at heart of India" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
It was one of my best tour experience. I visited Delhi in November and the weather was beautiful as expected. I visited some of the most famous places like CP, India gate, Karol bagh, Greater Kailash, Qutubminar and suggest all of the readers to do the same. In Delhi, fast food is the tastiest food like momos, chilli potato, all chat, chole bhature etc. But there are so much expensive things.

I suggest you all to go in the month of November-december and visit tourist spots in day because at night it is too cold.

Peace :)

"The heart of our nation" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
If you are on your winter break and wish to utilise them on exploring something important like our glorious past then you must be visiting here. All the prehistoric monuments, "many protected by U. N" standing quite from ages yet speaking loudly about their life, all there experience all that they have witnessed from these several years, there magical journey that is beyond words the journey that was our past all inscribed on the wall of those amazing creations created by our ancestors now standing in front of us old but beautiful, so beautiful that the incredible is the only word to define it.

I suggest you to visit here at least once if you never been here and experience the joy of witnessing our past. You can visit Red Fort, Qutab Minar, India Gate, Iron Pillar, Ashoka pillar, Jantar Mantar, Feroz Shah Kotla, Lothian Road Cemetery, Wall mosque, Mehrauli etc. Also there are various hotels here at affordable prices that you can choose according to your budget. For transport you can use Delhi Transport Service or Metro too. So my advice is that you plan your trip here as soon as possible.

"Night life is awesome" new review

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
When the sun goes down in Delhi, it is time to go out and enjoy everything. Whether your preference is for relaxing in a quiet wine-bar or letting your hair down and dancing the night away in a nightclub. Night-life means fun and entertainment at night: dance clubs, bars, parties, festivals, shows, restaurants, live music bands and all that. The idea is to go out and have good old-fashioned fun.

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!!"

  • 6/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
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!
