The capital city of India, Delhi is the home of executive, judiciary and legislative branches of the Indian Government. With its immense strength in arts, commerce, education, fashion, finance, healthcare, entertainment, media, professional services, R&D, transport and tourism; the city is even addressed as the microcosm of the country and is leading world’s top global cities.
The city of Delhi forms an ideal tourist destination given the historic and cultural eminence. It has a glorious past which has some fine traces of ancient rulers who controlled the whole nation sitting on the throne of Delhi. It is even considered to be the oldest existing city in the world after Jerusalem and Varanasi. Right from historic monuments glorifying the Mughal architecture, who happened to rule the country for maximum period of time after the British, to the stupefying buildings flaunting the modern architectural skills; the city has varied shades to reflect.
As far as the climate is concerned, Delhi stands extreme in both summers and winters. In the month of April to June, temperatures get scorching hot while it gets drenched with monsoon rain in the months of July to September. December to January the city just freezes with the cool winds bringing the temperature nearly to zero. Owing to this diversity in climatic condition in different months, the city marks a distinct place among all other states of India.
Delhi shows a mix of varied cultures as most of the people here hail from varied parts of north India like Punjab, Rajasthan, etc. While the Old City will take you down the memory line, the New Delhi is quite urban in appeal and living standards. However, this variation does excite you as you come across all the possible traditions with a touch of modernity.
