New Delhi is one of the World’s great cities, the capital of India it is not its most historic city though and Delhi may be a better bet if you are looking for history. New Delhi however is a centre of commerce and industry and of course government, the government of the World’s largest democracy indeed.

 

There is plenty to see and do in New Delhi, this includes simply taking in the city and walking its long tree lined boulevards and visiting markets and bazaars for shopping and to try local dishes. There are also a lot of museums and galleries but buildings such as the Qutub Minaret dating from 1183, Humayun’s tomb that is nearly as grand as the Taj Mahal, and the India Gate that commemorates Indian Soldiers who fell fighting for the British Empire.
