There?s an old saying the whoever establishes a new city at Delhi will lose it, and this has come true every time, i.e. 8 times already - from the hindu kingdom in the 12th century through the Moghuls and last, to the British Raj in the early 20th. A vibrant city of 13 million people concentrating life and history in one single place: old forts and temples, large mosques, bazaars and thoroughfare with chronically congested chowks. In addition, testimony of the colonial era, the New parts of Delhi, planned and built as the imperial capital for the British, systematised in parks and shaded avenues. Although the third largest city in India cannot boast the magnificent monuments scattered in other parts of the subcontinent, it is worth staying a couple of days.
