Delhi, capital of India, is two cities in one. The south city – New Delhi – was built in the early 20th century as the British imperial capital. It is the political centre of India with the President’s Residence and the Central Secretariat being fine examples of Lutyen’s neoclassical architecture. The wide boulevard of Rajpath leading to India Gate is a favourite gathering place of locals and tourists alike – especially when the sun has gone down and the evening perambulations and picnics begin. It is the best time to do some Delhi sightseeing.

Old Delhi is the northern part of the city, built in the 17th century, and was once the Islamic Mughal capital of India. Today it is home to a mix of ancient and modern – it is constantly busy with people, cars, lorries, mopeds, wandering cows and bullock carts jostling through its narrow streets. It is also home to the most famous buildings such as the Red Fort and Jama Masjid and the most iconic areas such as Chandni Chowk. Tourists from all over the world come to India for a Delhi sightseeing tour and they generally interested in knowing the glorious past of this ancient city. Delhi has many Mughal and British era architectural masterpieces which inspires International and national tourists to come for a Delhi tour.

In fact New Delhi is the eighth city in this area. Just a few miles to the south at Qutub Minar are the remains of the first city which was built by the Rajputs around 1060.

Your tour to sightseeing in Delhi is incomplete if you don’t taste the yummy food of Delhi.
