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.

"Awesome place, to be at" new review

  • 6/7

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.

"Delhi capital of India - very amazing and pleasing"

  • 6/7
  • Posted 1 month 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.

"A nice to have loads of fun"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Delhi was a nice place with nice people, nice infrastructure, nice food, and nice places. I alongwith my family of four went to Delhi, our capital, this November. Winter was beginning to shiver the city during nights and early mornings. Afternoon was pleasant. Hence, we choose this time of the year. We stayed at Hotel Atithi near Kailash Colony, New Delhi. The Hotel was situated at excellent location. Food, Service, Comfort, Price everything was excellent. On first we have visited ISKON Mandir, Hauz Khas, and Bangla Sahib. All these places were fantastic and it was fun to roam on the streets of the capital. Next day, we have done sightseeing around India Gate, Janpath Road, Embassy Road and visited Akshardham Temple. We have had our lunch at Delhi Paratha House, Old Delhi. We have never had such tasty parathas before. Next Day, it was chance for Appu Ghar, Qutub Minar and Ambience Mall, Gurgaon Road. Appu Ghar was much more than what we have seen on internet. Qutub Minar was a perfect example of Mughal architect. In the evening we have explored Lal Quila. Next morning, we have left for our Hometown. Can't forget the fun, the moments, the Joy and feel of Delhi.

I recently visited some cities and tourist places in Delhi. I wish to visit these places again with my family. Because everyone wants these places enjoying their free time and be tension free from their problems. There are many places to see and to see lot from there. Some old museum and some great masjid are there.

"A good holiday tour"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
We enjoyed a lot. We saw lots of places like palace, fort and etc which is our Indian history. Everyone should visit those places once in life. Each family should go and see those places for the knowledge of Indian history which is good for their children and they will know about our Indian culture and etc. Our tour was very interesting. We tasted the fast food of Delhi like chat and etc which was very tasty.

"Best way to travel is by metro"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
A nice holiday to be remembered. At the daytime no warm clothes are required. At night warm clothes may be require. Easiest way to reach many parts of Delhi is by Metro. I could meet many friends in Delhi. I visited some of their houses. The places visited by me included Mayur Vihar, Vaishali, Anand Vihar ISBT, NOIDA City Centre, Badarpur Border, Mandi House, Tagore Garden, Kirti Nagar, Inderlok, Rithala, Dilshad Garden, Qutab Minar, HUDA City Centre and Gurgaon. The Metro from Kashmere Gate to HUDA City Centre takes nearly 1 hour. Although, India International Trade Fair 2014 was going on, so I could not go there since it was the first for the general public.

"Super kebabs and Metro is awesome"

  • 4/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Paratha Wali Galli is a must visit. A vegetarian shop near MCdonalds or KFC makes such yummy food it takes better than non-veg. I forget the name but itís in Chandni Chowk on the left while entering the medicine wholesale market.
Metro in Delhi is sooo kewl, amazing connectivity and each person I met was very helpful and took the time to stop and explain and show directions. One person walked out of her way to ensure I stood at the right place for my metro even though she had to go in a diametrically opposite direction. Very sweet people. The crowd in the metros remind me of Mumbai locals. Never the less itís a great means of transport and I wish Bangalore metro can be half as active and connected as Delhi.
It seems the person who was in charge of Delhi metro was exceedingly honest and that's why itís able to bear the overpopulation and crowd. Shopping in little Gallis of Saharanpur was again an awesome experience with high end boutique shops and the very same material and look and design being copied by street shops and all located in same region. Cycle rickshaws take you from metro to the nearby places but I feel terrible for my added weight that the cycle rickshaw uncles need to pull. Maybe I should diet before my next trip :)

  • 6/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Delhi is the so good place for everything like enjoyment, teaching, and tourism. This is the capital city so security is also high. There are so many place for tour. If anyone want to know about the history of India, Delhi is the perfect place for this. Red fort is a so good place for touring. Whole Delhi is connected with metro. So it is easy to tour in the city.

"A good place to travel"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The metro trains are special in Delhi. If you want to go to Delhi you should reserve Bhopal shatabdi express. There is many place to visit. In Delhi you can visit India Gate, High court etc. Most of all the veg food was very good. I needed some more time as I was busy to travel in the metro train. In Delhi you should take metro train to go to your destination.
