Having both restless and tranquil attributes, the capital has become a complex municipal of India with cows wandering around the streets. The Red Fort dated back to 17th century is a collection of turrets and domes. On the other side, Chandni Chowk is an active market offering enthusiastic shopping experience. Jantar Mantar contains unusually large sundials. The astronomical instruments are still in use currently for weather prediction. The India Gate is a popular attraction for travelers. It is the national monument of India built to honor the soldiers who lost their lives in the Third Afghan War and World War I.

By Steily William
Ask people about New Delhi and you will get two different types of response – of visitors to the city and non-visitors. While visitors will narrate their myriad experiences, non-visitors will bank upon written facts and visuals to make a story. Nonetheless, one answer is certainly common for all, i.e. the capital city of India. The city is a hub of leisure, business, corporate, educational, and socio-cultural activities; people from all parts of the country stay here to earn a livelihood. An interesting fact about New Delhi is the emergence of cities around it, what is now termed in combination as the Delhi and NCR region.
If you have visited Delhi a decade ago, you will not find the same ambience now. Development took place at a rapid pace. To know about New Delhi in detail before you plan to visit here, do go online and collect as much information as you could.
