Delhi: Where Monsoon is Enjoyed by People

We all know Delhi is not perfect but still the charisma of Delhi is holding everyone so close to this city that no one ever wants to leave this place.  This third largest city of India is a fusion of the ancient and the modern. New Delhi represents a rich culture, architecture and human diversity, historical monuments, museums, galleries, gardens and exotic shows. New Delhi is a travel hub of Northern India. I enjoyed my 2 best years of life as a “Delhi height.”

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT NEW DELHI:

1. Delhi is one of the ‘greenest’ cities in the world with a green cover of almost 20%.

2. The entire public transport of the city runs on environment friendly Compressed Natural Gas.

3. Qutub Minar in Delhi is the world’s tallest brick minaret.

4. The walled city of Delhi originally had fourteen  gates. Five are still standing.  Here’s the provenance behind their names. Ajmeri Gate: Facing Ajmer in Rajasthan; Lahori Gate: Facing Lahore in Pakistan. Kashmiri Gate: Pointing North to Kashmir. Delhi Gate: Road to earlier cities of Delhi Turkman Gate:  Named after pious saint Hazrat Shah Turkam.

5. In between the rubble of the fifth city of delhi – Freoze shah Kotlastands the 3 century B.C. Ashokan Pillar. Emperor Feroz Shah Tughlaq brought this   27 tonne pillar to Delhi from Topar in Ambala, where the great Emperor Ashoka erected it.
