Located within India's vast state of Delhi, the city of New Delhi is a true bustling metropolis, filled with exciting sounds and smells. The much-loved capital city of the Republic of India, New Delhi is originally built by the British to be the capital of India, while nearby Old Delhi, known locally as Shahjahanabad, was Islamic India's capital city.
Delhi itself is steeped in history, being thought to date back some 5,000 years. Therefore, tourists exploring the region can expect to enjoy a host of ancient temples, shrines and buildings. Plenty of historic structures reside in New Delhi, along with many highly acclaimed modern buildings, and these can all often be enjoyed whilst whizzing around in one of the city's famous three-wheeled auto rickshaws.
