Old Delhi Tailormade Holidays

Officially two separate cities, the old city of Delhi and New Delhi are really two parts of one sprawling metropolis.

Still surrounded by crumbling city walls and three surviving gates, the vibrant, bustling Shahjahanabad, built over a period of 10 years by Emperor Shah Jahan, is very much a separate city. Old Delhi, with its predominantly Muslim population and Mughal architecture is comprised mostly of a labyrinth of tiny lanes crowded with rickshaws, and lined with run-down 17th-century havelis (Indian mansions).

The principal street is Chandni Chowk, which leads from the main entrance to Red Fort. Along this busy commercial street are mosques, a church, a number of temples and a series of sprawling bazaars. Old Delhi is home to Jama Masjid, India's largest mosque, which was commissioned by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and completed in 1656. The courtyard of the mosque can hold up to twenty-five thousand worshippers.

Nearby is the revered Raj Ghat. It is here that the Father of the Nation - Mahatma Gandhi, was cremated. A simple black marble platform replete with an eternal flame is inscribed with the epitaph – He Ram, (literally 'O' Ram', but also translated to 'O God') which represents the last words thought to have been uttered by Gandhi. Several other Samadhi or cremation spots of other famous leaders can be found in the vicinity of Raj Ghat on the banks of the Yamuna.
