Delhi is the capital and the third largest city in India . Situated on the banks of the Yamuna River, it is considered the gateway to India . There are several World Heritage Sites UNESCO in the city. It has about 16,753,000 inhabitants today.

Glances into history

3,000 years ago, a settlement was founded in the area of nowadays Delhi. Some people believe it could have been called Indreprastha, according to the legendary epic poem Mahabharata. Over time, eight other cities sprang up around the settlement and the today's Delhi began to develop. The city is divided into two completely different parts now- Old and New Delhi. Old Delhi was the capital of the Muslim part of India from the 12th to 19th century. New Delhi was founded by the British at the beginning of the 19th century and in 1911, it became the capital of the British colony.

Old Delhi

Old Delhi is formed by narrow lanes and is surrounded by fortification walls. In its center, you can visit the Red Fort from 1636-1658. It was built from red sandstone and that is where its name comes from. There are beautiful gardens and a museum in the fort complex. The Red Ford is a World Heritage Site UNESCO. Near the fort, there is the biggest Muslim mosque in India, the Jama Masjid with three cupolas and two minarets. Another place of interest in Old Delhi is the Silver Market (Chandni Chowk) , which was founded in 1648 and still works today. You can visit the highest minaret in the world, the 13-meters high Qutab Minar. Near the minaret, there is the oldest Indian mosque Quwwat-ul-Islam. At the court of the mosque, you can see the famous 7-m high Iron Pillar, erected probably somewhere around years 375- 413. The pillar is made from pure iron and has not yet begun to rust. It is in the beautiful gardens Lodi Garden that the Indian rulers are buried. The most significant tombs are the Safdarjung's Tomb from 1753 to 1754, the Nizam-ud-din's Shrine and the Humayun's Tomb. Humayan was the second Mughal Emperor and his wife had the tomb built in the 16th century. The tomb is a World Heritage Site UNESCO today. Other interesting sites in Old Delhi include the ruin of the fortified city Tughlakabad and the Astronomical Observatory of Maharaja Jain Singh.

New Delhi

The axis of New Delhi is the boulevard Rajpath (the Royal Street) . At the end of the street, there is a 42-meters high stone arch called the India Gate. On the walls of the gate, you can see the names of fallen Indian soldiers from the First World War and the Afghan War. The Presidential Palace (Rashtrapati Bhavan) is located at the other end of the street. There is a beautiful garden accessible to public only in February just by the palace. Another interesting building on Royal Street is the Parliament House, a round building with the diameter of 171 m. The center of New Delhi is the square Connaught Place, surrounded by skyscrapers. The local ZOO is a very popular tourist destination, especially due to the white tigers. The most interesting modern building in Delhi is the Bahá'í House of Worship, also known as the Lotus Temple, a beautiful temple in the shape of a large lotus flower surrounded by water.
