Delhi

Delhi, India’s capital territory, is a massive metropolitan area in the country’s north. Destined to serve as a royal capital since its birth, Delhi owes its cultural richness to the dynasties and empires that conquered it, bejewelled it with marvellous arts and architectures and left their imprints to last till eternity.

Delhi has a plethora of things for tourists to offer, and it is up to you to pick and choose which items you want to tick off your list, depending on what you want to see and where you want to go. If Delhi’s rich Mughal history pulls you, then you should take time to explore historical monuments such as the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Humayun’s Tomb and Qutab minar. Delhi has famous temples spread all across the city, a few significant ones being the Akshardham Temple, Biral Temple, The Lotus Temple (also known as the Bahai Temple), and the ISKON Temple.

The narrow, winding lanes and bylanes of old Delhi are a testament to the former Mughal rule. Old Delhi houses one of the country’s oldest and busiest market known as Chandini Chowk. As you begin to probe the city layer by layer, what surfaces is the historical and cultural supremacy which is difficult to imitate.
