Delhi
Delhi is sometimes referred to as Dilli, which is the second-largest metropolis in India after Mumbai. Delhi is one of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world. Having been the capital of several empires in ancient India, Delhi was a major city in the old trade routes from northwest India to the Gangetic Plains.

Delhi lies in northern India. It borders the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh on the south and Haryana on the west. Two prominent features of the geography of Delhi are the Yamuna flood plain and the Delhi ridge.

Delhi has been the capital of India since Independence in 1947, but even before that, the British moved their capital here from Calcutta in 1911. For much of its history, Delhi was the center of power of the various Muslim dynasties that ruled swathes of the subcontinent from the 12th century onwards. Modern Delhi is really two cities: Old Delhi and New Delhi.

Delhi has a semi-arid climate with high variation between summer and winter temperatures. Summers are long, from early April to October, with the monsoon season in between. Winter starts in November and peaks in January and is notorious for its heavy fog, which often disrupts road, air and rail traffic.

The best-known sights are the two buildings that dominate Old Delhi, the Red Fort and Jama Masjid. To the south of Old Delhi and in complete contrast to it, is Rajpath and the buildings on Raisina Hill (Rashtrapati Bhavan and the Secretariat) which form the centerpiece of British New Delhi. Heading south once more, through New Delhi, the visitor will find the bulk of the ancient monuments of medieval Delhi. Humayuns Tomb and the Lodhi Gardens are readily accessible from the center of the city. The Qutb Minar complex, the vast and formidable Tughluqabad and the remains at Haus Khaz are located deeper in the southern suburbs.
