Delhi

Delhi was an important place for the Mughals, they built palaces and forts here and had the walled city built from 1638 to 1649. After the fall of the Mughal empire in 1857 the British moved the capital of India to Calcutta. The British built modern “New Delhi” to the south west of “Old Delhi” which became India’s capital again in 1931.

 

Modern Delhi is a mixture of several distinct areas, including: Old Delhi with its wide avenues, grand vistas and colonial mansions; and the Mehrauli Archaeological Park best known for the Qutub Minar.
