Through a sweltering bazaar with each vendor crying out louder than the next, clamoring
through a sweaty crowd, a beggar tugs at your shirt as the sticky stench of the city
pierces your nostrils. Navigate your way across the road through a perennial traffic
jam of blasting horns and angry shouts, and suddenly you’ll find yourself stepping
through the trees into a deserted courtyard, flanked by gurgling ponds below the
huge glittering dome of an ornately patterned mosque. Welcome to Delhi
WELCOME TO DELHI.
This is Delhi, city of contrasts, where an elephant can overtake an overheated Italian
sports car on the streets, where colonial mansion stands next to squatter slum, and
where cows are revered, but musicians are labeled ‘untouchable’. The city’s pace
is chaotic, yet fairly relaxed, and makes it ideal for exploring. You’re certain
to be confronted with some of the strangest sights you are ever likely to see anywhere.
With a long and troubled history, Delhi is full of fascinating temples, museums,
mosques and forts, each with a distinct architectural style. In Old Delhi, visitors
will find a charming selection of colorful bazaars and narrow winding alleys. In
comparison, New Delhi – the city created to reflect the might of the British Empire
– consists of tree-lined avenues, spacious parks and sombre-looking government buildings.
While Delhi itself could take a lifetime to explore, it’s also ideal as a base for
visiting the Taj Mahal in Agra, and it provides the best links for travelling to
the hill stations of the North
