DIVE IN THE HISTORY

Delhi- A city of Cities

The rich lands of Delhi have lured men for centuries. On these banks of river Yamuna, many came to plunder, while others, with ambitions to rule Hindustan made it their capital. It is a city of cities, built and destroyed several times. The Legend of Mahabharata talks about the beauty and wealth of the mighty Indraprastha, which over five thousand years ago, was built by Pandavas as their capital in the same region. However, archaeological evidence suggests that the city of Lal Kot founded by Tomar rulers in 786 AD, was the first city of Delhi.
