Legend, history, and power come together in massive Delhi India. As the second largest city and capital India, Delhi’s metropolitan area is home to over 25 million citizens and some of the most spectacular sights in all of India.
Located on the banks of the River Yamuna of India, Delhi has been said to have been inhabited continuously since the sixth century BC, resulting in many layers of rich heritage and cultural experiences. Visit the Red Fort, Humayun’s Tomb, Lodhi Garden, or Nehru Park.
The city’s stunningly different worlds result from its function as a seat of power and political hub in both the Islamic India and the British Raj. But even long before, the city has had a legendary appeal for rulers. The capital of the Pandavas and Mahabharata during the mythological era was supposedly placed somewhere around the geographical center that became Delhi.
Old Delhi, the Islamic capital is a walled warren of tiny alleys, and grand mosques. Its once noble homes have largely disappeared. The same forces of decay have besieged the Red Fort, however, the Mughal fortification remains one of the most fascinating sites in India. As you enter through the Lahore Gate, you will be overwhelmed at the size and scale of the ancient structure, and while gardens have replaced other riches, it is still quite beautiful.
New Delhi, of the British Raj, resembles the stately districts of the European capitals, with wide, tree-lined streets and government buildings. Here you will find the India Gate, Rashtrapati Bhavan, and the Parliament House.
