Delhi Tours and Travels

About Delhi

Delhi is a huge city and one of the oldest on the planet. It is estimated to be over 5000 years old and rebuilt a staggering 11 times. Officially two separate cities, the old city of Delhi and New Delhi are really two parts of one sprawling metropolis with a number of attractions.

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. It is home to Jama Masjid, India's largest mosque, which was commissioned by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and completed in 1656. The mosque is a truly stunning building and the courtyard of the mosque can hold up to 25,000 worshippers. Nearby is the revered Raj Ghat, where 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 River Yamuna.

Offering a real contrast to the congestion of the old city, New Delhi has been the capital of the Republic of India since Independence and is home to many historic monuments as well as impressive Raj-era architecture. Largely planned and built by the British, the central administrative area of the city was laid out as a testament to Britain's imperial pretensions. At its very heart is the magnificent Rashtrapati Bhawan (then known as Viceroy's House).
