There’s an Old Persian prophecy which says:
“Whoever builds a new city in Delhi, will lose it”
and history is a witness to that. From the Pandavas and Prithviraj Chauhan to the Shah Jahan and the Lutyens', they all built new cities and they lost them.
Delhi has always fascinated rulers from around the world and the rich history and culture they all bought with them has stayed with this city forever. This city is a confluence of culture and modernity where you would find the most contradictory things coexisting together. This is Delhi, the city of Djinns.
The Old and the New
Have you ever been to the top of the Jama Masjid minaret where standing at over 130 ft. you could see the old Delhi in its full glory. At one side, you can see hordes of people bustling in Jama Masjid with the Red Fort sitting royally in the background and on the other side you could see the houses of Old Delhi; old and small, stacked together like a Lego board. It’s a magnificent view. You have to be there to experience it.
