Delhi - Capital in True Sense

India Gate - DelhiThe political capital of India, Delhi, as of today is in its seventh incarnation of the city. One of the most important Indian travel and commercial hubs, Delhi finds its roots in the great epic of Mahabharata as Indraprastha, the capital of the Pandavas. The sprawling markets, the rich culture, the matchless enthusiasm that charges the city with an eclectic mixture of the old and the new, makes it one of the most popular cities amongst the tourist destinations.

Delhi City
has always been a seat of power and a witness to the reign of different dynasties, both Hindus and Muslims and the terrible wars and revolts that have resulted in overturning of thrones and passing of the city from one hand to other. It has also been under the British rule for long and the well planned and sophisticated and aristocratic structures of the later period can be attributed to that period. These diverse rulers have left an indelible impression on the rich architectural and cultural heritage of the city.

Places Of Worship In Delhi
The people devoted to different religions live together in Delhi in perfect harmony and the cosmopolitan nature of the city is owed to the feeling of unity and brotherhood that binds all these people together. Nonetheless, people have not yet abandoned their traditions and rituals and observe them as strictly as ever and freely partake in each other's festivals and visit their places of worship with as much reverence as that of their own. This accounts for the thousands of devotees that seem to throng through every temple, mosque, gurudwara and church of the city.

Temples in Delhi
speak volumes of the devotion and faith with which they were built and the fragrant air of their vast intricately-carved and designed sanctums seems to be charged with tranquility and peace that corresponds to the soul of the spiritual growth that attracts many westerners to India. Lotus Temple of Bahai faith is perhaps the best among all of them and offers a divine experience as its lotus-shaped structure stands as an epitome of equality and brotherhood of the humankind with no distinctions of caste, creed, race, religion, color or sex.

The roads of New Delhi are smooth and wide. The mixed bag population of this metropolitan city is known for its unique blend of traditional slow-paced lifestyles of crowded and narrow lanes of Chandani Chowk and the modern up generation of youngsters who love the freshness of gardens, chic restaurants, extensive shopping arcades and lively discotheques and bars of their city.

Excursions in Delhi
The pilgrimage site on the banks of the holy river Ganges, Haridwar, is worth visiting, if only for a dip in the sacred waters and see the complex worship rituals in the numerous shrines crowding on the river's ghats, all in one go. The suspended 'Lakshman Jhoola', the iron bridge, in Rishikesh is a joy to the children of all ages as they throng the city, which gains even more importance as it is the starting point of the Hindu pilgrimage to the four major destinations, known as 'Char Dhaam Yatra'. The cool climate of the place is more in touch with the climate of Dehradun and Mussoorie, which provides the tourists, a respite from the heat of the tropical plains.
