About Delhi

Delhi, has seen the bouncedof many empires which have left behind a plethora of monuments that the grandeurand glory of bygone ages. A city which traces its history to Mahabharata, thegreat epic tale of wars fought between estranged cousins, the Kauravas and thePandavas for the city of Indraprastha.

Mughals ruled Delhi insuccession starting from Qutab-ub-din to Khiljis, Tughlaqs. The city of Delhipassed on to the hands of the British in 1803 AD. It was only in 1911, when thecapital of British Empire was shifted from Calcutta to Delhi, that Delhi gotits present prestige. After independence also, a kind of autonomy was conferredon the capital but it largely remained a chief Commissioners regime. In 1956Delhi was converted into a Union territory and gradually the chief commissionerwas replaced by a Lt. Governor.

NewDelhi, the capital of India, sprawled over the west bank of the river Yamuna isone of the fastest growing cities in India. It is surrounded on three sides byHaryana and to the east, across the river Yamuna by Uttar Pradesh.Historically, the city has long since been the foremost in political importancewith successive dynasties choosing it as their seat of power, between the 13thand the 17th centuries. Remnants of the glorious past survive as importantmonuments in different parts of the city.

The myriad faces of the city are simply fascinating. In some places it remainsa garden city, tree lined and with beautiful parks, but in some places it canalso be crowded with heavy traffic. Turbaned Sikhs, colorfully dressedRajasthani and Gujarati women working in offices, Muslim shopkeepers alongChandni Chowk in Old Delhi, Tibetans and Ladakhis in the street stalls alongJanpath and Kashmiris in the handicraft emporia around Connaught Place, all addto the cosmopolitan feel of the city. Soaring skyscrapers, posh residentialcolonies and bustling commercial complexes can be seen along with the ancienthistorical monuments. Its boutiques and shopping arcades offer access to awealth of traditional and contemporary crafts, from all over the country. OldDelhi which looks entirely different from New Delhi area, is about 6 Km northof the city center.
