Delhi also known as the National Capital Region is a metropolitan region in India. It is the largest city in India by land area. The town was known as Indraprastha, where Pandavas used to live. Delhi has been a witness to the political turmoil for over five centuries. It was ruled by the Mughals in succession to Khiljis and Tughlaqs. In the year 1803 AD, the city came under the British rule. In 1911, British shifted their capital from Calcutta to Delhi. It again became the center of all the governing activities. After independence in 1947, New Delhi was officially declared as the Capital of India. But, the city has the reputation of over throwing the occupants of its throne. It included the British and the current political parties that have had the honour of leading free India. The National Capital Region includes the neighbouring cities of Gurgaon, Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad and other nearby towns. Modern Delhi, popularly known as Lutyens' Delhi, itself dates back to over a century. New Delhi, as it is known today, has wide-open lanes, avenues and buildings that are worth traveling across the globe for. Besides the usual tourist attractions of Modern Delhi - India Gate, Rashtrapati Bhavan, Parliament House, North and South Block - which are stunning examples of British architecture, we can also see many Mughal architecture buildings in the city. There are various museums, temples and memorials that provide a comprehensive and entertaining insight into the lives. Some of them are Birla Mandir, Humayun's Tomb, Jama Masjid, Jantar Mantar, Qutab Minar and Red Fort.
