Delhi, the political capital of India, is the main gateway for visiting the north of the country. For centuries, it was the seat of the imperial power of the Mughal dynasties that succeeded one another in the conquest of the Indian continent. The East India Company and then the British Empire designed New Delhi to establish their capital there.
A necessary landing station to visit the states that surround it, New Delhi is dotted with historical sites and enchanting parks, stirred by the traditional life of a very old country and very modern at the same time, and animated by scores of cultural events that such an important metropolis must have. It deserves that one stops there for few days to capture its essence.
