Delhi Travel Guide


DELHI is capital of India and has been a centre of power almost continuously since the 13th century. This big city is divided into Old Delhi Travel Guide Indiaand New Delhi; the former also comprise the seventh city of the Mughals - Shajahnabad. One of the most fascinating aspects of Delhi is the "visibility" of its historic past. From the 12th to 17th centuries, the rulers of successive dynasties established seven "cities" in different parts of Delhi. During this period, some of the most outstanding monuments were built which stand as past glory of the Afghan and Mughal architecture.

The Qutub Minar was built in 1199. Its base covered 14.32 meters area and height is 72.5 metres. Humayun's Tomb begun in 1564 is one of the best examples of garden Tomb.

An imposing citadel 'The Red Fort' and ' Jama Masjid', the largest mosque in India was built in the 17th century.

In 1206, Qutbuddin crowned himself as the Sultan of the Slave or Mamluk dynasty, and became the first Muslim ruler of Delhi. Qutbuddin, had started thinking his architectural future even before he chose to become the sultan. The mosque was essential to the Islamic emphasis on congregational prayer, while the burial of the dead, as opposed to cremation, introduced the tomb to India.

Qutub Minar, one of the starting Islamic structures are to be seen in the Qutub complex and the incorporation of many Hindu elements is due to the ready availability of building material and the use of local craftsmen. Qutbuddin raised the Quwwat-ul-Islam (might of Islam) mosque, which is the earliest extant mosque in India. Qutbuddin retained one Iron Pillar known as Vishnu temple of 4th century within its spacious courtyard, and all these centuries this Iron Pillar has not rusted at all.

Qutbuddin raised the Qutub Minar in 1199 and was completed by the Sultan's son-in-low 'Iltutmish'.Qutub Minar started by Qutbuddin either as a victory tower or as a minaret to the adjacent mosque. It is still the highest stone tower in India. Iltutmish also built one tomb nearby in 1235. Its interiors are profusely decorated with calligraphy, thought the dome has collapsed.

The Classical Delhi built during the British Empire , like Parliament House, President House, India Gate, the World War I memorial arch. Delhi offers various museums out of few important ones are like National Museum , National Gallery of Modern Art, Gandhi Museum Crafts Museum, Dolls Museum, Rail Museum, Temple of Bahai - a Islamic sect founded in Iran in 1836 by Bahaullah.
