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.

"Blend of ancient and modern culture" new review

  • 5/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
It is loded with iron pillar of chandragupta mourya to metro rail. It is blended with ancient to modern culture. Ancient mughlai recipe to modern pizza. We are sorry for stuttering down 200 hundred years. Old ghantewala sweet. We failed to taste sohan halwa.

My overall experience was wonderful because I was with my brother in my own car. If you are coming to Delhi prefer Metro or Cab, don't prefer any Bus. Delhi mall was perfect spot to visit. You know Delhi is a historical place which is famous for its History.

Actually Delhi is one of the greatest place in India. As an Indian we must visit Delhi in our life to know that how much beautiful our country and our assembly area is. I had visited India gate, Indian Parliament, and IGI road etc. It was a nice trip in my life. I will be having a second trip during the end of this year.

"A nice place to visit" new review

  • 6/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Delhi is nice place as the people say but exactly not, it is true there is too much pollution and the traffic is another headache. But there are some places like india gate, lotus temple where you can visit. So overall Delhi is ok as it is in the heart of India.

"Paradise for food lovers and shopaholics" new review

  • 5/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
The very first time I went to this place I decided I am just going to come here every year to gorge on all the mouth watering north Indian food available here and yes shopping too. So much to do. This place is forever buzzing with energy. Do not forget to try Chandni Chowk, Nizamuddin ke parathe, the momos and dal makhani and kababs practically everywhere. Lot of breweries and the fact that most of the hill stations are near to this place, makes it all the more amazing. Wish it was more safer though.
