New Delhi

Delhi is in fact really two distinct cities; the energy and colour and the thronged bazaars and Mughal architecture of Old Delhi contrast with the formal splendour of New Delhi, whose wide boulevards offer ever-changing perspectives of Lutyen's landscaped city.

The division in the Walled Old City and New Delhi also marks the division in life styles: the walled city retains its past traditions and one can get a glimpse of a past life with its many facets, colours and spells.

New Delhi, in contrast, is a city trying to live up to the best of twenty-first century standards. Amidst the tall and modern skyscrapers the remnants of a bygone time in the form of its many monuments stand as silent reminders to the region's ancient legacy.
