As we all know Delhi is the heart of India. India is such a big country its 70 % population living in rural area.Capital of India “Delhi” has its own memorable things and landmarks like Red fort, Jama masjid, lotus temple, India gate and many more. The Indian capital city of Delhi has a long history, including a history as the capital of several empires.Delhites always welcome you whenever you come to Delhi. he earliest architectural relics date back to the Maurya Period (c. 300 BC); since then, the site has seen continuous settlement. In 1966, an inscription of the Mauryan Emperor Asoka (273-236 BC) was discovered near Srinivaspuri, which is near Noida. Eight major cities have been situated in the Delhi area. The first four cities were in the southern part of present-day Delhi.
According to Indian folklore, Delhi was the site of the magnificent and opulent Indraprastha, capital of the Pandavas in the Indian epic Mahabharata, founded around 2500 BC. Hindu texts state that the city of Delhi used to be referred to in Sanskrit as Hastinapur, which means "elephant-city". A village called Indraprast existed in Delhi until the beginning of the 19th century. The British demolished the ancient village to make way for the construction of New Delhi in the late 19th century. Archaeological evidence suggests that Indraprastha once stood where the Old Fort is today. Excavations have unearthed shards of the grey painted ware (c. 1000 BC) that some archaeologists associate with the age of the Mahabharata, but no coherent settlement traces have been found.And now the question comes that the name Delhi where it comes from so the answer is the name Delhi may be derived from the word 'Dhillika', though there are other theories. According to Satyarth Prakash (1875) of Swami Dayanand, Raja Dhilu (King Dihlu) founded ancient Delhi in 800 BC, however it is not supported by any older text. It was the name of the first medieval township of Delhi, located on the southwestern border of the present Delhi, in Mehrauli. This was the first in the series of seven medieval cities. It is also known as Yoginipura, that is, the fortress of the yoginis (female divinities). It gained importance during the time of Ananga Pala Tomar. In the 12th century, the city was included in the dominions of Prithviraj Chauhan.
