Delhi

India Gate Delhi

Overview
A potpourri of cultures and a perfect fusion of brewing politics and history, New Delhi is the rightfully deserved Capital of India which is also known as the entry gate in India for most foreign tourists.

Encompassing the history of multiple reigns, New Delhi is one of the oldest cities developed across the world along with Jerusalem and Varanasi (Banaras). The city also finds its mention in mythological legends as Indraprastha, the Capital of Pandavas in Mahabharata.

The 5000-year old city holds an affable charm for the tourists with its blend of traditional and modernistic in every aspect. From swanky malls to lip-smacking street food to indulgent nightlife, the city has something for everyone. Hop on a special rickshaw ride to colorful bazaars for that special treat!
In its due course, New Delhi has survived and established itself over seven times ranging from Hindu Rajputs to Mughal reign to British for over 200 years before forming its own present identity. Due to its historical charm and strategic proximity to most of the tourist attractions in North India, the city also happens to be a part of the popular Golden Triangle Tour (Comprising Jaipur, Taj Mahal and New Delhi).

Officially, the city is planned over six main districts and is at some point, divided by River Yamuna. The weather in Delhi can get very extreme combining the ruthless heat of Rajasthan and freezing winds from the Himalayas. For tourists, it is nothing less than that of a shopper’s paradise with spoiling choices right from popular street markets to high-end international brands and suave mall culture.
