Where is Delhi in which state?
New Delhi, the capital of India, is located in what is now the Union territory of Delhi. The population of the capital is about 250,000. New Delhi is equally an administrative center, an industrial city, a transport hub and one of the cultural centers of the country. Since New Delhi and Delhi form an urban unit, the two cities are often simply called Delhi.
Delhi replaced Calcutta (now Kolkata) as the capital of India by the decree of George V, King of England and Emperor of British India, in 1911. British architects Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker were commissioned to design the new government district. At the same time, the construction of the new capital began on the then southern outskirts of Delhi. In 1929, the capital of the plan was completed, which was solemnly handed over in 1931.
Although New Delhi is mainly the administrative center of the Indian government, the capital is also home to some industrial enterprises, especially light industry, printing and textile industry. In New Delhi you can very well buy textiles such as silk, cashmere jackets and scarves, hand-spun cotton fabrics and everyday clothes in traditional, but also in modern design.
As a planned city, New Delhi clearly stands out from other Indian metropolises. In the north of the city is the bustling business center Connaught Place. This district is characterized by large advertising spaces, hotel and office towers. Around the square in the center there are tall white buildings in a circular arrangement, the verandas of which are supported by columns. The royal promenade runs through the city centre, from the palatial rashtrap ati Bhavan in the west to the India Gate, a war memorial in the east. Also worth seeing are the numerous museums of history, arts and crafts.
