"A capital for many" New Delhi by josephescu

New Delhi Travel Guide: 1,174 reviews and 2,625 photos

The Old Delhi served as capital for many throughout its history: from ancient Hindu kingdoms to the Moghuls and their Islamic India…. while the New Delhi was planned and built as the imperial capital for the British, systematised in parks and shaded avenues. From the Old Delhi’s main thoroughfare and chronically congested Chandni Chowk….to the lifeless Rajpath and the immense Connaught pl…..present day Delhi is home to over 13 million people. And belive it or not, this is only the third largest city in India, after Bombay and Calcutta.....
