History

Delhi is counted among the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world. Records have been founded which prove Delhi to be a rich historical place since more than 5100 years. In ancient times of Mahabharata (Dwapar Yug), Delhi or Indraprastha was the capital of the Pandavas. It witnessed several empires like Mauryan, Tomara, Chauhan Rajputs, Turkic, Khilji, Tughluq, Sayyid and Lodhi, before the Mughals came into power. Mughals ruled for many years in Delhi, constructed various monuments and provided new parameters to the trade. After the great revolution of 1857, the British took the power through the East India Company and declared Calcutta the capital for company rule.

In 1911, a new town “New Delhi” was separated from the old one and was declared the new capital of India under the British empire only. Delhi accepted people from every background and inherited their culture & tradition as well. Delhi's culture is influenced this way only. This 'unity in diversity' can be seen in every perspective of the city.
