From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Welcome to the Delhi Portal!

Delhi (Hindi: दिल्ली, Urdu: دہلی‎) is the second-largest city in India and, with over 11 million residents, the eighth largest metropolis in the world by population. It is a federally-administered union territory officially known as the National Capital Region (NCR).

Located on the banks of river the Yamuna in the Haryana region of northern India, Delhi has been continuously inhabited since at least the 6th century BC, according to archaeological evidence. After the rise of the Delhi Sultanate, Delhi emerged as a major political, cultural and commercial city along the trade routes between northwest India and the Indo-Gangetic plains. It is the site of many ancient and medieval monuments, archaeological sites and remains. In 1639, Mughal emperor Shahjahan built a new walled city in Delhi which served as the capital of the Mughal Empire from 1649 to 1857.
