Delhi, situated on the banks of the River Yamuna, is both a city and a union territory with a long and complex history. Possibly continuously occupied from the 7th century BCE, Delhi now hosts a population of over 25 million people, making it one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. Due to its strategic location, it has served as the capital of numerous empires and powers and has thus been the nucleus of great conflict, conflation, commingling and cultural exchange making it culturally, historically and politically significant.
Home to many monuments, sites and structures of architectural and historical importance as well as a plethora of modern and contemporary buildings, Delhi is a beautiful amalgam of the past and the present that exist seamlessly side by side. Metros whizz past markets and bazaars, fine dining is juxtaposed with fast food stalls, the gears of government grind next door to gardens, parks and galleries – saying that Delhi has something for everyone would be an understatement of the greatest magnitude!
