Explore New Delhi
Delhi (officially the National Capital Territory of Delhi) is a city and a union territory of India. It mainly comprises old Delhi and New Delhi, and the latter is the national capital of India since 15th August 1947. India’s second richest city, Delhi also pairs up with Jerusalem and Varanasi as one of the oldest cities in the world and it dates back to 6th century BC. It has served as a capital to many empires and dynasties over this period and is thus home to many historically and architecturally significant monuments like Red Fort, Qutub Minar, Jama Masjid and Purana Qila. New Delhi’s significance is best seen during all major national events like Republic Day (26 January), Independence Day (15 August) and Gandhi Jayanti.
Things to do in New Delhi
The Red Fort was built on the orders of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in 1648. Surrounded by a moat spanning 2 kilometers, this red sandstone superstructure is famed as the seat of Mughal power until the Revolt of 1857. The Red Fort mainly offers entry through two entrances- Lahore Gate and Delhi Gate. The former faces the Pakistani city of Lahore and leads to a famous market called Chatta Bazaar, while the latter is more ornately designed and was used by emperors during ceremonies. It is customary for Indian Prime Ministers to unfurl the Indian Tricolour on Independence Day and Republic Day every year.
Built over two centuries between 1193 and 1368 AD, the Qutub Minar was then the world’s tallest skyscraper. It tops at 72.5 meter minaret before tapering into 5 storeys. It is a rare mix of ornate Persian architectural styles because it features intricate carvings telling the history of Qutub and is supplanted with inscriptions from the Holy Quran. The Qutub Minar is flanked by a late 12th century mosque called Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque whose complex is one of the earliest surviving Islamic structures in the Indian subcontinent.
India’s answer to France’s famous Arc de Triomphe (located in Paris), the India Gate in Delhi is a stone arch that commemorates the fallen Indian soldiers of First World War. It is centrally hallmarked by two highlights- an eternal flame and the walls that are inscribed with the names of nearly 1 lakh fallen soldiers. It is best to visit here after the sunset when it is swathed in floodlights and its fountains are in full swing.
Best Time to fly to New Delhi
The best times to fly to New Delhi are the late autumn, winter and early spring seasons that together run from October to March. The weather is at its supreme best as the temperature ranges between 20 and 33 degree Celsius with occasional rains. This translates into lots of time for sightseeing and enjoying cultural festivals like Baisakhi and Holi. Budget travelers can visit Delhi during summer and early monsoon season from May to August. It is hot and humid at 33 to 40 deg C with a good amount of rainfall, a difficult combination that attracts fewer tourists and thus affordable flight and accommodations.
