Old Delhi used to be an important place for the Mughals who enclosed the area within 14 gates and built their forts and palaces during the Mughal Dynasty. Now, most of the gates have diminished and the place has become quite congested. Despite being an extremely crowded place, Old Delhi never fails to attract tourists. It is one of the most popular areas for heritage walks. The ancient monuments, tombs and forts takes one back to the era of Kings, forgetting about the chaos of the place while creating nostalgia for the lost glory.
