Modern New Delhi, or New Delhi as it is called, centers around the Rashtrapati Bhawan. It is architecturally a very impressive building standing at a height, flowing down as it were to India Gate. This stretch called the Rajpath is where the Republic Day parade is held. The imposing plan of this area conceived by Lutyens does not fade in its charm with the numerous summers or winters that go past.

The various abstract structures within the Jantar Mantar
are, in fact, instruments thatwere used for keeping track of
celestial bodies. Yet, Jantar Mantar is not only a timekeeper of
celestial bodies, it also tells
a lot about the technological achievements under the Rajput kings and their attempt to resolve the
mysteries regarding astronomy.
Fort In Old Delhi, you may visit the
ramparts of the Red Fort. The decision for constructing the fort was
taken in 1639, when Shahjahan decided to shift his capital to New
Delhi from Agra. Within eight years, Shahjahanabad was completed
with the Red Fort-Qila-i-Mubarak (fortunate citadel)-New Delhi's
seventh fort, ready in all its magnificence to receive the Emperor.
The Red Fort still retains some of its lost glory. The Red Fort was
the last fort built in New Delhi and it witnessed the vicissitudes
of fortune, the splendour and the fall of the Mughals, British rule,
and finally the dawn of Indian Independence. A place must see by all
tourists visiting Delhi.
