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/
