Delightful Delhi, the capital city of India has traditionally been the seat of administrative power of India. For centuries, its glory attracted one conqueror after another. Here several dynasties ruled, leaving monumental gifts to posterity. The Qila Rai Pithora, bequeathed by a Rajput King; the Qutub Minar, grand gesture of an Afghan King; the Red Fort that Shah Jahan, the great Mughal built; the ruined Old Fort, from where once the wise King Sher Shah ruled; the glorious Jama Masjid, eloquent reminder of Mughal religious fervor; the tombs and mausoleum in remembrance of ruling nobles and kings. It is all here to see, this slow march of history, carved in stone.
