With the imprint of an unending host of kingdoms and dynasties that ruled here through the ages, Delhi has come to be an extraordinary and mystical mosaic of medieval fortifications, Mughal mausoleums, places of worship, dusty old world bazaars, colonial grandeur and mega malls. Shahjahanabad, as Delhi was known in the 17th century, built by the Mughals, is perhaps one of the first examples of urban planning that humankind has witnessed. In Mehrauli, which is the oldest urban settlement of the city, stands the magnificent Qutub Minar, built in the 12th century that never fails to amaze. While Old Delhi is the gateway to many such haunting souvenirs of history, New Delhi or Lutyen’s Delhi is an impressive expression of 20th Century garden city principles. It is hard for a traveller not to be overwhelmed by the cultural assortment the city offers, as they travel back in time with its cultural richness and then back to contemporary world class facilities and services that it has to offer.
