Delhi is a bustling metropolis, which successfully combines in its folds
the ancient with modern. Its strategic location was the prime reasonzs
why successive dynasties chose it as their seat of power. In fact, more
mythological cities are believed to be here, like the city of
Indraprastha from the Hindu epic Mahabharata, founded around 5000 BC.
Numerous monuments were built over several centuries by different rulers
like Qutub-ud-din Aibek, Alauddin Khilji, Tughlaks, Humayun & Shah Jahan,
who built the Walled City Shah Jahanabad.
Later in first half of 20th century much of New Delhi was planned by Sir
Edwin Lutyens, who laid out a grandiose central administrative area as a
testament to British rule in India. The division in walled city & New
Delhi also marks the division in life styles.
