Delhi is a vibrant city with a rich tapestry of history, art, culture, music, theatre and a literary heritage that rivals most cities of the world. With nearly 2500 years of recorded history it has served as a giant melting pot of influences from around the world. It suffered numerous armed invasions, pestilences, wars, fires and looting. Yet the city retained many of the markers of the passage of time…be it 1000-year old fort walls and victory towers, or one of the world’s largest mosques, famous palace-forts, architectural wonders of British Raj which are coupled with the breath-taking modern wonders like the efficient Delhi Metro, F1 racing tracks, and the beautiful Lotus Temple.
Even though there is a lot of pomp, show and spectacle, Delhi has its share of intimate and hidden corners, dusty winding alleys, monumental ruins that are desolate in their own beautiful ways, museums and serene, jungle-like green spaces. Every turn brings you face-to-face with a new aspect of life as it is today or as it may have been once upon a time!
