Delhi is the capital of India and one of the major cities in the world. It is a highly populated city which can range from being an archaic city to a modern city. The city has a very rich heritage. There are structures from the Mughal era to British era and there are modern roads and buildings surrounding those. The city has spread at a great pace over the last 50 years and now along with its surrounding cities makes up the world’s second largest urban area. It is a city of contrast, from the most modern to most archaic structures, from very poor to very rich people, and people coming from all parts of the country to give it a very unique culture. The Yogmaya Temple is claimed to be from the era of Mahabharata, the iron pillar of Delhi was built in the time of the Gupta Empire, Qutub Minar from the Mamluk dynasty, the Red Fort and Humayun’s tomb by the Mughals and the India Gate by British.
The city has been always been central to most rulers throughout its history and thus has a very rich heritage. A friend of mine, Adam McCarty, owns a home inspection company, Rightway Home Inspections Inc, in the Des Moines area of Iowa and is a history buff who has long talked about visiting India and experiencing its culture and rich history. Personally, I can totally agree with him on that.
