DELHI


is a treasure trove of history, is a journey back in time, is bustling backstreets


ABOUT DELHI

"Delhi is a soldier's town,a politician's town, journalist's, diplomat's town. It is Asias's Washington, though not so picturesque, and lives by ambition, rivalry and opportunism."

Jan Morris
"Delhi is the capital city of the world's largest democracy, India. A symbol of the country’s rich past and thriving present, Delhi is a city where the ancient and the modern blend seamlessly. Culture of Delhi is a mix of the cultures found in different states of India. With a history that goes back several centuries, Delhi showcases an ancient culture of a rapidly modernising country. It is a city where time travel is plausible, having been the seat of many powerful empires in the past, its long history can be traced in its rich architecture and carefully-preserved monuments, parliament buildings, ancient forts and tombs. It is home to three World Heritage monuments - Qutub Minar, Red Fort and Humayun’s Tomb - that have survived many centuries, and give an idea of architectural wonders.
No visit to Delhi is complete without an experience of its gastronomic delights such as delicious curries, barbecued tikkas, and kebabs. It is famously called a shoppers’ haven, whether you want to pick up some rich, woven silks, handicrafts, or ethnic cushions for your home, Delhi houses it all. When you travel through Delhi, you will get to hear qawwalis, aartis, and gurbanis at the different places of worship. Simultaneously, you will also get to hear loud rock music at the pubs and the discotheques. Delhi is neither limited by its cosmopolitan culture, nor its colonial grandeur, it is a ground of limitless opportunities and has a place for everyone and anyone.Go on, explore Delhi and celebrate the food, culture and books of India’s capital.”
