New Delhi Tour


NEW DELHI TOUR

INDIA'S THROBBING CAPITAL

Down the ages, the region in and around modern Delhi saw Lalkot built in the mid-11th century; Siri established by Allauddin Khilji; Tughlakabad and Ferozabad built by the Tuglaks, followed by the city of the Lodi’s; and then came Shahjahanbad, the capital of the Mughals under Shah-Jahan. New Delhi also reflects the legacy, the British left behind. The division between New and Old Delhi is the distinction, between the capitals of the British and the Mughals respectively. So, wherever the visitor goes, he will invariably confront the past of the city.

The throbbing presence of Delhi pulls one out of the reflections of a mute past. The divisions in the Walled City and New Delhi also mark their varied lifestyles. The Walled City is all about traditions, whereas New Delhi, in contrast, is a city living up to contemporary international standards.
