National Capital Territory of India - Delhi
The Union Territory of Delhi is a federal district similar to Washington DC. The capital of India and its' third-largest city, Delhi blends an historic past and a vibrant present. In addition to being the centre of government, Delhi is a major travel gateway. It is the second most widely used entry point into the country, the hub of the north Indian travel network, and a stop on the overland route across Asia.
Present day Delhi is built around the ruins of seven ancient cities. Legend has it that Delhi, then called Indraprastha, was originally founded around 1200 B.C. by the Pandavas, the august heroes of the epic Mahabharata. Old Delhi was the capital of Muslim India between the 17th and 19th centuries, and here you will find many mosques, monuments and forts relating to India's Muslim history. The Imperial city planned for the British by Lutyens is set in parks and shaded avenues. It is a spacious, open city and contains many embassies and government buildings.
