Delhi Travel Guide

Getting Oriented in Delhi

India's wildly colorful, loud capital radiates from the broad avenues of its British-built center, its sprawl circumscribed by several concentric roads. The suburbs to the south are the most relevant for the first-time visitor. And just north of Central Delhi, the compact, dense Old City has its own internal warren of neighborhoods. Lodhi Road is a good demarcation between Central and South Delhi. Delhi is part of the 12,965-square-mile National Capital Region, which packs in more than 22 million people as well as satellite cities (like outsourcing hub Gurgaon) dotted with luxury high-rises and malls, in neighboring states.
