Delhi

India's capital city, Delhi is the second most widely used entry point in the country, being on the route of most major airlines. It is well linked by rail, air and road to all parts of the country. The remains of seven distinctive capital cities - among them Shahjahanabad and Qutab Minar - can be seen.

Here, museums, art galleries and cultural centres attract the finest exhibitions and performances from India and Abroad. Shopping encompasses virtually everything that can be bought in the country. Hotels range from the deluxe to the more modest. Most fascinating of all is the character of Delhi which varies from 13th century mausolea of the Lodi kings set in sprawling park to ultra modern chrome and glass skyscrapers; and from imperial India's Parliament House and the President's Palace to the never ending bustle of the walled city surrounding Jama Masjid. Delhi also makes the ideal base for a series of short excursions to neighboring places, all connected by road.

Delhi, the capital of India houses some of the magnificent monuments built from 12th century monuments built from 12th century onward - The Red Fort, Qutab Minar, Humayun's Tomb, Jama Masjid, India Gate (War Memorial), Parliament House, Presidents's House, Bahai Temple (The Lotus Temple) are worth a visit. Besides, there are number of interesting museums. The most important ones are National Museum - the premier museum of India, National Gallery of Modern Art, Rail Museum and Gandhi Museum.
