Delhi is the Capital of India. Explore Delhi to experience a fusion of power, politics, invasions, and conquests of free India. The esteemed city has been the epicenter of political, cultural, social, religious, evolution. This enchanting city is a miniature version of the entire nation itself. This city represents the vast demographic picture and the power that resides within the entire Indian sub-continent.

Past unfold......
The travelers get to see the two cities though they pay the price of one city. Delhi is divided between two parts Old Delhi, which was earlier known, as the capital of Muslims is full of formidable mosques, monuments and forts. It's a lively area of colorful bazaars, narrow streets and a barely controlled chaos. In contrast, New Delhi, is the imperial city created by British, is composed of spacious, tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings, and has a sense of order absent in other parts of the city.

Cultural spectrum......
Delhi has attracted people from all parts of the country forming it into a totally multi-cultural society. As the Punjabi's are the most dominant section here, you'll find a distinct flavor of Punjab everywhere. The dominance of Western culture is also too much on this city due it's influence on the mass media.

The various cultural activities of earlier days--such as dancing, music, and poetry forums, 'mushaira' have been yielding a place now for cinema, cabaret and clubs. There are also theater groups and institutions that have nurtured indigenous literature and fine arts.
