Capital of India, is a city steeped in diverse mix of
and tradition. A real blend of tradition and modernity.
Delhi's age old monuments and stand cheek-by-jowl with
ultramodern sky-scrapers. The city, situated on the
banks of Yamuna river, is studded with monuments and
modern complexes, park and gardens, national memorials,
museums, galleries, churches, mosques and temples. The
broad tree lined avenues
and vistas of Lutyen's Delhi,
centered around the Rashtrapati Bhawan and the narrow
alleys with small shop huddled together in Chandni Chowk,
inside the historical walled city all reflect the true
spirit of age old Delhi.
Among the popular tourist locations in Delhi are the
Qutub -Minar,Red-Fort, Jama Masjid, Lotus Temple,
Gardens, Humanyun's Tomb, Zoological gardens and park
with attractions for the young and the old. While at one
end of the city is south Delhi's Qutub-Minar, a
beautiful 73m high Stone monument towering above New
Delhi's skyline, the old Delhi of Ghalib has within it
Jama-Masjid, one of the largest Historic Mosques in Asia
and the Red-Fort, built by the great Mughal Emperor,
A short drive from India Gate and Rashtrapati Bhawan is
the Lotus Temple, a marvel of modern architecture in
white marble which resembles a newly blossoming fresh
Lotus, dedicated to the Bahai's Faith, this is among the
finest monuments of New Delhi.
For those who wish for more, a short distance away are
Agra, Jaipur, Corbett-National Park, Khajuraho and the
Ajanta and Ellora Caves.
