Delhi the capital city of India is more like a triangular region covered by the Aravali hills in west, and river Yamuna in the east. Communities of the city date back to the Stone Age as well as others that relate to history. A beautiful connection of the ancient, medieval and modern can be seen in Delhi. Monuments located in Delhi are traces from the history. Some monuments here are almost a thousand years old. What role Delhi played in history is clearly depicted in these few monuments. Various dynasties ruled here. Almost 15 locations contribute to where a new city got established. Delhi is today counted among those few metropolitan regions that house a large number ofheritage structures. The city has 155 national monuments with1,000places of cultural importance.

Sufi Connections

One among the famous names when it comes to Sufism in the country is Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya. Nizamuddin Auliya settled in the city after following the path that his predecessors followed.His tomb is located in the West Nizamuddin area, which was previously dubbed Ghiyaspur. Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya has his mausoleum under the name of Nizamuddin Dargah, which is counted one of the most visited places in Delhi. As you walk through it, you get to see the narrow markets all around which remain beautifully decorated.Hundreds of devotees believe in the Dargah’s power and therefore, tie up threads red in color to the tomb’s lattice screens.
