“Delhi is the symbol of old India and new? Even the stones here whisper to our ears of the ages of long ago and the air we breathe is full of the dust and fragrances of the past, as also of the fresh and piercing winds of the present” – Jawahar Lal Nehru
In the series of India Travel Stories, the following is compiled around the capital city of New Delhi, highlighting why one should visit Delhi.
The city has its historical importance for the fact that it has been the home to Mugal Empire. Delhi, as described by the famous poet Mirza Galib, is “The world is body and Delhi its soul”. The history speaks the importance and contribution of Delhi in many ways. Delhi has the most beautiful history among other prominent cities in India. Study from the Archaeological Survey of India states that Delhi was the capital of seven empires in Indian history and has over 60, 0000 recognized monuments built over several millennia. Delhi has got historic masterpieces like the Red Fort, Qutab Minar, Jama Masjid and many more.
Delhi is a Shoppers’ (Bargainers’) final destination! Chandni Chowk, Sarojini Market, Connaught Place and an endless list is a perfect paradise for mallrats and shopaholics. Be it electronics, clothes, jewellery, name it and you have the best of it.
The shopping paradise has a huge list of places, with every price range with anything you ask for.
Delhi is the celestial city for greedy guts. The range of food available in Delhi is simply astounding, from Pizzas and Pastas to traditional Indian dishes, from street food to ambient restaurants, we have it all.`
Delhi is one of India’s most multifaceted cities, with the downtown swish restaurants serving as a stark contrast to the old city’s medieval-flavored bazaars. From Chandani Chowk to Rajouri Garden, we have it all.
Delhi-ites are very modern and also open to embracing all the new customs and transforms. They have deep roots and a love for their culture. People of varied caste, creed and of course culture live here with serene and harmony. This shows the “Unity in Diversity” among the people of Delhi. Delhi is one place which openly accepts and has people from all over the country, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.
The diversity in the culture of the city can be seen in festival season where people from varied religion come together for a common cause. We celebrate our festivals and life together with a rare chance of clashes. We celebrate life with ecstasy and that is why Delhi has been most proudly abbreviated as “Dilwalon Ki Delhi.” And of course, there is no deny in the fact that the people who are here usually very open-hearted and lively.
Delhi is a melting pot—a city of cities steeped in traditions, heritage, faith, and history, yet modern and contemporary.It has got a beautiful culture, we celebrate almost every festival, be it Holi, Diwali, Eid, Durga puja, lohri, everything. It’s like all the the roots from different states have entwined to form the capital of the country, Delhi.
We hope you are excited to visit Delhi and experience the charm and hustle of India, which is beautiful in its own way.
