The vibrant capital city of India, Delhi is an ancient seat of power dating back more than 3,000 years; a city where the architectural legacies of timeless monuments are juxtaposed with iconic modern landmarks.

Delhi has been captured, ransacked and rebuilt numerous times throughout its history. The city in its current avatar was designed in the 1920s by Sir Herbert Baker and Sir Edwin Lutyens, who conceptualised the layout around two central promenades, Rajpath: the King’s path, and Janpath: the people’s path.

Nowadays, Delhi is a bustling metropolis; a vibrant centre of international arts and culture, and a thriving commercial hub.

THINGS TO DO

Humayun’s Tomb

Humayun’s Tomb is considered to be the blueprint for Agra’s Taj Mahal. A thirty acre UNESCO world heritage site made of red sandstone, with grand Mughal domes, high archways and intricate latticed windows, Humayun’s Tomb was the first garden tomb to be constructed in India.

Chandi Chowk

Old Delhi’s centrepiece is the bustling Chandi Chowk: the Moonlit Square of India. Witness fantastic original architecture, multi-coloured facades, beautifully decorated shops, and delight in the cacophony of hawkers and exotic fragrances that pervade the delightful alleys. We recommend visitors to Chandi Chowk also explore the nearby Jama Masjid (the largest mosque in India) and Red Fort (Lal Qila).
