New Delhi - The Heart of India



Description:

Delhi – only a few are unaware of this city. The centre of power of the Indian government, the venue of the upcoming Common Wealth Games 2010, and a true cosmopolitan city, Delhi offers an experience of India that is unrivalled to none. This is especially true for those visitors who are short on time, but wish to experience India’s diverse cultures.

Here the old and the new, the traditional and the modern, the slums and the bungalow coexist in comfort. On one hand, you marvel at the architecture of Old Delhi, especially the Chandni Chowk area, where houses and buildings, shopping districts, and the Khao galli from the pre-Independence era still stand in all their glory. On the other hand, there are the new-age gated communities and malls that house the glitz and glamour, entertainment, and designer wears from around the world.

There are monuments such as the ruins of Old Fort that dates back to the mid-15th century, Red Fort that bespeaks the history of the Mughals, India Gate, India’s Arc-de-Triomphe; places of worship, which are also astounding architectural pieces such as the Lotus Temple and Birla Mandir; and a range of shopping destinations for just about all pockets.

With eateries and watering holes in just about every corner, your visit to Delhi is bound to be as much delightful as it is adventurous.
