New Delhi is the capital of India, a country which is one of the largest emerging economies of the world. India is characterized by the fact that although the official language is Hindi, vast majority of the population speaks English and almost all official work gets done in English too. Delhi is a city that bridges two different worlds. Old Delhi, once the capital of Islamic India, is a labyrinth of narrow lanes lined with crumbling havelis and formidable mosques. In contrast, the imperial city of New Delhi created by the British Raj is composed of spacious, tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings.
Delhi has an area of 1,483 sq km and is situated at Latitudinal parallel: 28.3oN and Longitudinal meridian: 77.13oE. It is 293 m above sea level and has a population of 13.85million (Census 2001). The temperatures vary from 45oC (Max) - usually in May – Jun to 5oC (Min) -usually in Dec – Jan. People of Delhi embrace a modern lifestyle. Delhi has always been a Cosmopolitan city where one would find people from all parts of India. Overall, Delhi is a very multi-linguist and multi-cultured society which has now opened itself to embracing every new custom and tradition.
With more and more tourists coming to Delhi, the government has a special ministry to look into the well being of visitors. Tours and travel agencies in the city provide tourism services ranging from accommodation to guide and sight-seeing. Delhi tourism department has set up help desk services for foreign tourists who can find all necessary information about the city.
