Delhi is the majestic capital of India.
The land where empires rose and fall in
the history and many emperors appeared and
disappeared. The old ruins of Delhi assert
the majestic and imperial past and the present
pulsates vibrantly with the ever-flowing
life of India.
Delhi has acquired a lot of names over the
ages and has always been intrinsically identified
with power and imperial control.
The eternal river Jamuna stands proud as
the sole witness of the glorious and turbulent
5,000-year-old history of Delhi. The history
of Delhi goes back to the creation of Indraprastha
by the Pandavas who transformed this barren
gift of the Kauravas to an idyllic haven.
The historic Purana Qila that stands tall
has witnessed Delhi's rejuvenation, the
period of anarchy, and the rise & fall
of empires. Amidst the tranquility of the
splendidly panoramic environs of Purana
Qila, Delhi's historic and legendary past
come to life. After Shah Jahan built Red
Fort the attention of administration shifted
to gorgeous palaces of the fort. Today the
fort is open for the public but only limited
area can be accessed.
