Delhi – India
Immerse yourself in India’s famous capital city, a bustling metropolis packed with spectacular monuments both ancient and modern. Delhi’s multidimensional nature reflects the country as whole, and has two distinctive parts. Old Delhi is home to national treasures that hark back to its Moghul and Muslim past, while New Delhi reveals its more colonial British past. The Red Fort is one of the cities greatest attractions, a fantastic ancient sandstone citadel built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who also built the Taj Mahal. Jama Masjid is another breath-taking wonder, a beautiful, near 400 year old Mosque. It is India’s largest, and can accommodate an incredible 25,000 worshippers. Humayun’s tomb is another inspiring monument, an incredible Persian influenced mausoleum which floats above stunning green gardens. The Qutub complex is a magnificent UNESCO World Heritage site dating back to the 13th Century Slave Dynasty, and is home to several tombs and mosques.

Where is it?
The crowded city, which is one of the most populous in the world, is situated in the extreme north of India.

What is it?
The Capital city of India was also the Capital of the Moghul Empire for over 200 years, and truly reflects India’s multicultural identity and eventful past. Some of the city was designed by the great British architect Edwin Luytens, in the early part of the 20th Century.

Best time to visit?
October to March present the best conditions to visit the numerous attractions in Delhi, as the weather is cooler than the scorching summer months.

Must See?
The Qutub Minar, situated in the Qutub complex, is a truly magnificent structure. The incredible 72.5 metre tower is the world’s largest free standing brick minaret, and the red sandstone and marble structure is one of India’s most wondrous and treasured monuments.
