About Delhi

Delhi, the capital city of India is one of the most fascinating mixes of the cotemporary and the ancient, the global and he local. Having the rare claim of being a center of power almost continuously since the 13th century, the city offers something special for each taste and every preference.

To begin with Delhi is the city of monuments. From the time of the Mughuls, monuments of the most incredible beauty and craftsmanship have been raised here. Amongst the older examples are the Purana Quila (Old Fort) built by Sher Shah Suri between 1538 and 1545 AD, the Red Fort built by Shah Jahan and the venue for the Indian independence day address by the Prime Minister, Humanyun’s tomb, Safdarjung’s tomb, and of course, the Quub Minar, the highest stone tower in India. The British left behind their mark in the form of Lutyen’s Connaught Place, India Gate, Rashtrapati Bhavan and the Parliament Hose, each one a spectacular example of vision and elegance. The Hindu Kings also made their contribution by building monuments like the Jantar Mantar by the Rajput King, Sawai Jai Singh in 1724. In more recent architecture is the Akshardham temple built on the banks of the river Yamuna and representing different aspects of Indian mythology.

One of the most endearing things about Delhi is the fact that it is truly secular in essence. From the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India to the bells of the Sacred Heart Cathedral, from the domes of its gurdwaras to the contemplative silence of the Bahai Temple, from the beautified images in the Birla temple to the sounds of devotion in the ISKON temple, the city houses spaces for all people to worship and carry on their own chosen interactions with the divine.

Delhi is also a shoppers paradise. From the best international brands available to the most exotic indigenous handicrafts, you can buy anything you wish for, be it global or ethnic, be it art, craft, fabric, jewellary, carpets, leatherwear, brassware or embroidery. If you are the adventurous type and want to savour the unadulterated flavour of the Indian experience walk down the streets of Chandni Chowk and allow yourself to be astounded by the fragrances, tastes and colours of India. If you prefer less crowded areas go to a south Delhi mall or have your pick in Connaught Place, alternating between craftsmen selling their wares and international labels flaunting their stuff.

For those who have a cultural bent of mind, Delhi offers museums, libraries, art galleries, dace, music and theatre performances, poetry readings and historical walks as just some of the options to choose from. And to make things even easier the city also has the best possible facilities in terms of accommodation, cuisine and travel arrangements to offer its visitors.

However, that being said, he Delhi experience goes beyond all these things. It is in fact, a combination of sensations, sights, flavours, sounds and humanity that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world. Come and see for yourself the magic of this monument city as it throbs and thrives with the beat of a million heartbeats in unison.

India is a place full of different spices of life. Here you can find snow dipped mountains, seducing beaches, wild-life enriched forests and acres of barren but gorgeous deserts.
