One of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world with a history that has always alluded to its political importance and strategic location for governance, Delhi has been the capital of many empires.
It was once situated on ‘Uttarapath’ or the Great Northern Highway, which, in ancient times connected the Mauryan capital city of Pataliputra to Takshashila (Taxila in Pakistan).
What is perhaps most exciting about this city is that its history lies comfortably within the fabric of its modern life with its busy business centres, malls, buildings and ring roads. Monuments from possibly every period of its history stand in casual corners, drawing little attention to themselves. But once you stop a moment, take a deeper look, there is a lot they are willing to reveal.
