The Capital of Indian Republic is often the starting point
of a visit to India. It is a city, which phoenix-like has
risen many times from its ashes.
Today, there are two Delhis, the old city of Mongol built
by "Shah Jahan", the emperor who built "Taj
Mahal" in Agra, and the new city built by british in
It is stimulating juxtaposition of the old and the new.
Old Delhi evokes Mongol ambience and New Delhi has
boulevards and imposing office buildings.
Both the cities are rich in monuments.
Delhi is the Capital of India, third Indian largest city, and
the home of some of the finest monuments of the Mongol Empire and
British Raj. It's also one of the most important centers of India's
busiest air lines, the hub of the North-Indian travel network and an
excellent base from which to visit Agra and Jaipur, two of India's
most popular cities.
Travelers to Delhi get two cities for the price
of one. Old Delhi, the capital of Muslim India between the mid-17th
and late 19th centuries, is full of formidable mosques, monuments and
forts. It's a live Area of colorful Bazar, narrow streets and barely
controlled chaos. Jama Masjid is also an ancient monument, there.
