Delhi – capital of the world


The centuries-old history and culture of India, majestic architectural monuments and museums of Delhi have a unique attractive force. Delhi is a city where time travel is feasible. Step aboard the time machine and one can go from Old Delhi, where labourers haul sacks of spices and jewellers weigh gold on dusty scales, to modern New Delhi, with its colonial-era parliament buildings and penchant for high tea. Then on to the future: Gurgaon, a satellite city of skyscraping offices and glitzy malls. This pulsating metropolis has a bigger population than Australia, and is one of the world's most polluted cities. But woven into its rich fabric are moments of pure beauty. There's a hustling, but also a self- centered vibe one can get from people in Delhi.

Delhi is of great significance as an important commercial, transport, and cultural hub, as well as the political center of India. Home to millions of dreams, the city takes on unprecedented responsibilities of realizing dreams bringing people closer and inspiring their thoughts. Delhi is a city that has been repeatedly ravaged and reborn, with vestiges of lost empires in almost every neighbourhood. There's so much to experience here, it's like a country in itself and it’s not only the capital of India but capital of the world indeed.
