Located on the banks of the River Yamuna, Delhi is a city state that comprises Old Delhi and the capital, New Delhi. Old Delhi, as the name suggests, is an ancient city; Delhi is known to have been continuously inhabited since the 6th century BC and even before then. The city's position in South Asia has allowed Delhi to flourish over years as a major trade city. Overtime, immigration and trade has seen the city grow into a cosmopolitan metropolis with a booming economy and population. Today the city's average income is relatively high for its population and Delhi stands proud as a cultural and commercial centre.

Old Delhi is a walled city built in 1639 upon the rule of Mughal Emporer Shah Jahan. This city acted as the capital of the Mughal Empire up until 1857 and still contains many monuments from this period. Even in modern times, Old Delhi remains relatively untouched with time. Ancient relics, mosques and forts are scattered throughout, while vibrant bazaars selling spices, sweets, oil and traditional cuisine wait to be discovered in the city's winding lanes.

Beyond Old Delhi's walls lies India's capital, New Delhi. The new city was built to the south of the old city during British rule in the 1920s. In 1947 when India gained independence from British Rule, New Delhi was declared the country's new capital. As a result, political and commercial interests turned to the imperial city and a number of government buildings, including the offices of the federal government, national museums and art galleries, were established. As a planned British city, New Delhi features smooth roads and colonial buildings. Modern life and skyscrapers have also made their mark on the city as retail chain stores and cinemas light up Connaught Palace and office buildings and hotels stretch towards the sky in Central New Delhi.
