City of Cities: New Delhi, India

Known as the ‘City of Cities’, New Delhi is the bustling capital of India exhibiting the confluence of the old and the new. It has two parts, the Purani Dilli (Old Delhi) and the Nayi Dilli (New Delhi), with each one exhibiting its own kind of aura and charm. Situated in the north-central part of the country on the west bank of the Yamuna River, it is a host of many famous historical monuments, several gardens and tree-lined avenues. A visit to New Delhi offers enduring memories specially for those looking for a cultural and historical treat.

Parliament House

The Parliament House of India is located in the northwestern side of the Vijay Chowk in the region of the secretariat structures. Its central hall, which is circular in shape, is considered to be very important part of the building since this is the place where the Indian Constitution was drafted.

New Delhi Khan Market

This makret, which was established in 1951, has successfully managed to sustain its original structure even in times of rapid modernization. It is open until midnight. It is a good place to find good Indian items and food.

Given my background in Public Administration, this caught my attention.
