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.

"Mr NAND Kumar" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 5 days ago
Delhi and New Delhi was great, we saw a lot of places and went out to restaurants, they were excellent, I got really surprised with very high standard of service and food. Shopping was really enjoyable and people treated us very well. The hospitality was more then excellent except for some scooter rickshaws who were trying to take us for shopping at their designated shops where they get paid commissions. We got trapped first day but learned our lesson. Overall we loved Delhi and New Delhi and planning to go again in December this year.

"Stay at Arpit Palace, Karol Bag, New Delhi"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Hotel is located at a central place & is also close to Delhi's shoppibg paradize, " Jamal Khan Rd"
Hotel is utility type offering minimum required facilities at no frills. Hence price charged is reasonable. Staff is courtesous & helpful.
It is good for families as well as professionals for a comfortable stay.
Regards,

"Durga Puja and Dussehra at Delhi"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Streets were difficult to negotiate because of encroachment of pandals. Weather was good, neither too cold nor too hot. Must visit Science Museum at Pragati Maidan. Open from 10:00 am. Set aside at least a couple of hours for this depending on your interests. Visit Bengali Sweet House near Mandi House for food. They serve a variety of cuisines including snacks, sweets and savouries. Reasonable rates. Metro connectivity is a great convenience in Delhi. Try selecting places that are connected with the metro network. Makes commuting very easy! Be prepared to negotiate a HUGE crowd at Rajiv Chowk metro station though!

"Delhi - A worthy holiday for the entire family"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
As an Indian, I feel it is a must to visit Delhi atleast once in your lifetime. It is a great city - Capital city with so much history associated with it. A perfect getaway with your entire family.
Some places in Delhi make you so nostalgic and proud that you are an Indian, especially the India gate, Gandhi museum, Rajghat, Shakti stal, Parliament, Rashtrapathi bhavan etc.
Anywhere between 1-2 days is good enough to go around the city. For first-timers - you should take the metro ride, go to Connought place, visit palika bazaar and Central park.
