Delhi is India's capital and a city of two halves. Old Delhi – the heart of Muslim India between the 17th and 19th centuries – is a bustling and crowded medieval district of grand mosques, majestic forts and crumbling monuments. This is quintessential India. The colours and smells overwhelm, the scent of spices fill the air and the vibrancy of everyday life is invigorating. Wander the famous Chandni Chowk market then visit the Jama Masjid and Red Fort. In contrast New Delhi, with its tree-lined avenues and white-washed bungalows was purpose-built in the 1930s by the British as a colonial capital and remains the epicentre of Indian political power. Here see imposing India Gate, but also visit the beautiful Humayun’s Tomb, Qutb Minar complex and Rajghat where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated.
