Delhi history dates back for 4,500 years - much as an imperial capital and the home of kings. Today it is the capital of united India and India's 3rd largest city with a population of almost 14 million.

Old Delhi, the capital of Muslim India between the mid-17th to the late 19th centuries, is a lively and crowded area, full of colorful bazaars, narrow streets with many mosques, monuments and remains of ancient forts.  In contrast New Delhi, the imperial city created in the early 20th century by the British rulers, with spacious tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings, presents a sense of order missing from the older sector.
