“Yeh Dilli hai Dilwaalo ki”– Delhi, the official National capital of India, is the home for the most benevolent. In the words of the famous Urdu poet, Mirza Ghalib, “I asked my soul what is Delhi?” She replied, “The world is the body and Delhi its life.”
Delhi is known for its rich heritage, spectacular architecture, variegated culture, instigating patriotic feelings, scrumptious and economical cuisines, street shopping at giveaway prices, adorable gardens, devotional experiences and much more.
The ever so versatile city is truly considered a symbol of opulent past and thriving present of India. Excursionists from all around the world discover this great city that has been destroyed and rebuilt in the olden times when it was under the reign of several rulers.
The extraordinary beauty of Lodhi Gardens, magnificent Lotus Temple, the towering Qutub Minar, the divine Akshardham, radiant red sandstone witnessed on Red Fort, the majestic Jama Masjid, exalted Humayun’s tomb, palatable delicacies and the modish Hauz Khas , makes this city a sought-after place to put oneself in the comfort zone with the peaceful aura of the cafes and immaculate gardens. The street markets at dirt cheap rates at Sarojini Nagar, Connaught Place, Janpath and Kamla Nagar to fill up your wardrobe attracts shopaholics to visit the city often.
The intra-city state-of-art-metro network is available to commute from one area to another with ease. The words fall short to express the comfort it offers for the travellers. This facility has changed the traffic situation by leaps and bounds. It is through this distinguished feature that even in the city as big as Delhi, nothing seems beyond reach.
