Delhi is India’s busy capital, and is a city that embraces the old and the new. Here you will find tall glass skyscrapers and ancient stone palaces and forts. The history of the capital stretches back a long way: there have been no fewer than eight historic Delhis, with each city built near the ruins of its predecessor. Today there are only two Delhis: Old Delhi, which lies to the west, between the Aravalli Mountains and the Yamuna River; and New Delhi, which lies to the south.

Some of the city’s main sights include the Red Fort, the Qutub Minar and Humayun’s tomb, all listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites. It’s also worth checking out some of Delhi’s vibrant markets, such as Chandni Chowk, which has been in operation for hundreds of years. You can also visit the Raj Ghat memorial, built on the site where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated.
