witness to this interesting bygone era are the various monuments of
Delhi. From the Old Fort to the Tughlaqabad area to the various tombs in
the city, each one represents a separate period in the history of
Delhi. In the area of New Delhi, historical monuments cover mostly those
that were built during the time of the British like the Parliament
House, President's House, the India Gate etc.
Monuments of a city give you an insight to the city's past and history.
Delhi is ahistoric land which has a diversified culture and the effect
of the past civilization can be seen even today among the citizens and
the demography of Delhi. People of Delhi are very proud of the cultural
heritage and this is reason why people don't hesitate in planning a
vacation to Delhi. The monuments in the city are very well preserved by
the Archaeological Survey of India which goes to show the importance of
preserving the ancient remains over other developmental activities.
Another factor that is responsible for these well maintained structures
is the vocal nature of the citizens who fight and raise their voices to
protect the ancient heritage and culture. This is indeed very
commendable because you need such places to experience peace and
tranquility away from the rush of hectic and busy lifestyle where
everyone is running to make their ends meet. http://viewdelhi.com/
