The Indian capital of Delhi is perhaps one of the most visited cities in the country, as it offers an easy access to several other tourist attractions, especially the Taj Mahal in the city of Agra. However, the city has a lot to offer intrepid travelers. To reach this destination, several flight deals are available.
The city is divided into two parts, namely Old Delhi and New Delhi. The older part of the city is home to ancient Red Fort, which was built by Emperor Shah Jahan, and many mosques. The newer part of the city is home to embassies, government buildings and museums.
Red Fort was built in the 17th century after the Mughals shifted their capital from Agra to Delhi. The fort, which is red in color, is renowned for its amazing architecture. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. It is on this fort that the Prime Minister of India hoists the Indian flag on 15 August every year when the country celebrates its independence day. Airline tickets for cheap are also available to visit this historical city. Since the city has gained lot of popularity due to recently held Commonwealth Games, the number of footfalls increased considerably. This is the reason number of flights to Delhi has been increased.
Another attraction in the city is the Humanyun’s Tomb. The tomb was constructed in the 16th century and is popular for its amazing architecture. Hamida Banu Begum, the widow of Humanyun, ordered the construction. The tomb was constructed in the midst of a garden and was inspired by Persian architecture. In 1993, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site. All these attractions increased the popularity of the city and consequently the number of cheap flights to Delhi also increased.
Located in southern part of Delhi is another World Heritage Site, Qutub Minar. The structure was constructed in the 12th century from red sandstone, marble and bricks on the orders of Qutb-uddin Aibak in 1192. It is said to be the world’s tallest minaret.
