Delhi Sightseeing ToursDelhi, one of India's fastest growing cities, has spread far beyond the "seven cities" created between the 13th and the 17th centuries. It has sprawled over the west bank of the Yamuna and now straddles the river. Remnants of the past survive cheek -by-jowl with skyscrapers, residential colonies and bustling commercial complexes. Delhi has some of the finest museums in the country. Its boutiques and shopping arcades offer access to a wealth of traditional and contemporary crafts from all over the country. It has speciality restaurants to please the gourmet, open parks and gardens ablaze with flowers, and in the winter months particularly, a variety of cultural events. Its many-layered existence is tantalizing and can entice the curious traveller into a fascinating journey of discovery.

The great fort of Tughlaqabad wasraised in 1321 as a protection against Mongol raids and became Delhi's third city. The fort and tomb are characteristic of robust Tughlaq architecture. Delhi's fourth city,Jahanpanah has practically disappeared but its fifth, Firoz Shah Kotla rises offBahadur Shah Zafar Marg and is well known for its Ashokan pillar which the Sultan brought fromMathura. Timur devastated Delhi in 1398 and as a result the 15th century saw little growth. The tombs of the Lodi kings date to this era and are within the landscaped Lodi Gardens, one of Delhi's most beautiful gardens.

The classy commercial centre of Connaught Place was planned as part of New Delhi. Alongwith stalls on Janpath, and emporia on Baba Kharak Singh Marg, it is a shopper's paradise. Rather characteristically, an 18th century masonry observatory, the Jantar Mantar, lies in the midst of this commercial area.

But there is still more to Delhi... Art galleries and theatres and a variety of museums... memorials to leaders... Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain and Bahai temples- folk dancers, discotheques, urban villages- even birdwatching along the ridge. Come discover a country through a city,
