New Delhi is the capital of India and the commercial, cultural and artistic centre of the country.
New Delhi was planned as the imperial capital of the British Raj, when it decided to shift its capital from Kolkota (Calcutta) in 1911. The new city, which was completed in 1931, sits alongside Delhi, which has been settled for 2,500 years and served as the capital of Islamic India under the Mughals from 1649 to 1857.
With 11 million people in the city and more than 17 million in the metropolitan area, Delhi is India’s second biggest city after Mumbai and in the world’s top 10 most populous cities. It is a microcosm of India itself and its multicultural population help make Delhi the cosmopolitan city it is today.
A symbol of this is Delhi’s fine cuisine and truly world-class restaurants. You can find regional restaurants in almost any Delhi neighbourhood and many world-class establishments serving international flavours as well as local specialities.
While New Delhi is marked by wide boulevards, impressive office blocks and fancy hotels, Old Delhi is a rambunctious maze of medieval bazaars and winding alleys. The sheer number of people, cars, rickshaws, smells, shops and sights make Delhi a unique global city. National Geographic has named it in the world’s top 50 ultimate cities to visit.
As the capital to one of the most important economies in the world today, Delhi has prospered as the capital of India and is a growing centre of importance in global business and commerce.
