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.

"Delicious and affordable food" new review

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 2 days ago
Delhi is always welcoming. India Gate and Dilli haat are few places to hangout. But it's too crowded. Metro is the best option for travelling. One should not stay in hotels in Pahargunj. Although they are affordable but they are not good. Food is always nice. I tried Dilli Darbar and the food was very good and not too expensive..

"A place with man-made attractions" new review

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
We enjoyed very much, especially at Taj Mahal. Delhi is a beautiful city with lot of diversities and cultures. It's a brilliant experience to be part of the journey. The main place to visit in Delhi is the Taj Mahal. It is very beautiful and of course the beauty of it is the water in front of the building. We also visited Red Fort. It is also very beautiful and the must see place of Delhi.

"A place with beautiful attractions" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
The capital is worth a visit with infinite tourist places. Shopping here is the biggest attraction. Quality hotels, restaurants and with many historic places to go, visiting here is a big fun. It needs few days to view all the attractions. I visited Humayun's tomb, Louts temple, Red fort and a few hotels. Beside hotels, the street food of Delhi is simply awesome. The local markets are always crowded, the markets shows true colours of our country. A tip to visit this place is between the months of October and February. I visited in summers. The hot temperature of Delhi will spoil your tour so better visit in winters. It is worth a visit.

In Delhi, there are many historical monuments like Red fort, Qutub Minar and Jantar Mantar. These historical monuments are very beautiful. There are also Akshardham and Jama Maszid. The most beautiful place of Delhi is Akshardham. It is a beautiful city.

I had a wonderful experience at this place. The monuments, gardens, markets and even the roads of Delhi are fabulous. The only thing in this beautiful place was bad traffic. Overall, it's a nice place.

Delhi is a wonderful place to visit. It has its own historical reason. India Gate and Akshardham Mandir are very nice places to visit. India Gate was built during the British time. It is the second largest city in our country after Mumbai. People are very good they interact with us with peaceful manner. A must visit city.

"Good places and delicious food" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Delhi is a great place but the time we went to Delhi was not great as there was curfew imposed in many places of the city. The parts that we visited were good, the food was great. The overall cleanliness of road and the services available for the tourists was satisfying. It was a great experience of two days at Delhi. All of you who like historic monuments should visit it once.
