Delhi, also famous by name 'Dilli' as pronounced in Hindi, is officially the National Capital Territory (NCT). With the capital of India New Delhi being a part of this NCT, it is India's second most populous city after Mumbai.
A mesmerizing combination of both new and old in the names of New Delhi and Old Delhi, the place is nothing but a bowl full of beautiful Indian history, culture, and an assortment of wonders. And what's more, it even happens to be the hub of country's every major political activity, thus becoming a delightful tourism destination that every travel connoisseur should be paying a visit to.
Geography and climate
Situated at an elevation of 0-125 meters, Delhi is present in the Northern part of India. Bordering the state of Uttar Pradesh to its East and Haryana towards its South, West and North, Delhi's geography consists of two main features – The Delhi Ridge and the Yamuna flood plains. River Yamuna is the one and only major river flowing through the capital city.
Delhi has a humid subtropical climate. While its summers are long and extremely hot and dry, the winter months are extremely chilly. The capital city will be full of fog during these months. While the summer months start from April and last June, rains start puring from June until October. Then from the month of November starts winter.

The Richness in the Capital's Culture
As is the history of Delhi, so is its culture – Very diverse. While all major Hindu festivals from Diwali to Mahavir Jayanthi and Holi, Lohri, Krishna Janmashtami to Guru Nanak Jayanthi are celebrated here, popular here are unique fests such as Qutub festival, Vasanth Panchami, world book fair and international mango festival too, to name a few.
And for being that place where the the Mughlai cuisines actually originated, the Delhi food habits have an influence of Mughlai dishes. However, the regular Indian cuisines are also popular here. Here is a mention of some of Delhi's classic cuisines: Kadai chiken, butter chicken, chaats, jalebi, kachori and lassi!
