India's capital city is a fascinating mix of old and new, with the Red Fort its most famous building.

Delhi is located on the Yamuna River (a tributary of the Ganges) and is split into Old Delhi in the north of the city and New Delhi in the south. It is India's third-largest city with a population of around 19 million people. 

Old Delhi was the capital of Muslim India from around the 12th century and here you will observe many buildings that reflect this including mosques and forts. It's a wonderful area to explore with narrow alleyways, city walls and famous sites like the gigantic Red Fort. Other attractions are Jami Masjid, Fatehpuri Masjid and experiencing the atmosphere on Chandni Chowk.

New Delhi was established by the British and is India's main administrative centre. The layout of New Delhi is a spacious and relaxed city, with many parks and tree-lined avenues. The hub of New Delhi is Connaught Place, where there is a massive bazaar, restaurants and offices.  

Delhi's climate is one of extremes, with very hot temperatures in the summer months from Mid-March to the end of June, followed by heavy monsoon rains from July to September. The best time to visit is from October to March, when rainfall is very low (if at all) and the temperatures ranging for 20-30 degrees centigrade, ideal for sightseeing and exploring.
