Sprawling across the plains of north India as far as the eye can see, India’s capital has moved far beyond city status into the realms of metropolis. With a population of 20 million and counting, Delhi positively thrums with activity, from the top of the towers of its burgeoning business districts to below ground where a glossy new Metro whisks a quarter of the inhabitants a day through its tunnels. It’s mesmerising, intriguing, and just a bit dizzying.
But even as the city continues to creep outwards like ink on a piece of blotting paper, at its core remains an older Delhi – several older Delhis, in fact – that’s full of history, culture and colour.
There’s the spacious New Delhi of the British Raj, Edwin Lutyens’ grand design that took almost 20 years to conjure into existence from 1912. There’s Old Delhi, a heady confection of winding alleyways, thronging bazaars and tantalising aromas from countless street-food stalls. And dotted across the two are the creations of earlier rulers, from refined Mughal tombs to crumbling Tughlaq fortresses.
Find your own perfect Delhi with advice from our India specialists who have their finger on the city’s pulse, from the finest places to rest your head to the most immersive local experiences.
