Delhi Tourism

A capital city of great character, contrasts and convolutions – Delhi is a delicious cocktail. A city with antiquity that dates back over 2,000 years, it is also a modern metropolis with fast cars, neon lights and shopping malls. So varied are the shades of Delhi’s different faces, it is difficult to grasp in a short span of time. Home to over 10 million people, Delhi emerges from the ruins of the seven historical cities built over time, to the central hub of commerce and government, onwards into the prosperous southern parts and the multitude of villages which have been engulfed by the ever-growing city.

A repository of India’s culture and heritage, Delhi is famous for its many museums, art galleries and craft expositions that are a mirror to the entire country. This capital city is also the centre of important cultural festivals where performers of the classical arts, modern pop stars, artists, sculptors, dramatists, film-makers et all come to present their works.

Charting phenomenal growth over six decades after India’s independence in 1947, Delhi has now become a heterogeneous mixture of all religious groups, linguistic communities, social segments and economic brackets. While Delhi is bustling with activity, it can brutally stamp out the vulnerable, leaving no ripples on the surface, so be careful. Delhi - here you can feel the pulse of India beating to the rhythm of rapidly changing times.
