Day 01 Arrive Delhi

Arrive by International flight, after traditional 'Swagat' (Welcome) our representative will assist you at the airport and transfer to hotel for check in. Delhi is a bustling metropolis, which successfully combines in it folds the ancient with modern. Its strategic location was the reason why successive dynasties chose it as their seat of power. In fact, more mythological cities are believed to be here, like the city of Indraprastha from the Hindu epic Mahabharata, founded around 5000 BC. Later in the first half of the 20th century much of the New Delhi was planned by Sir Edwin Lutyens, who laid out a grandiose central administrative area as a testament to British rule in India. The division in walled city and New Delhi also marks the division in life styles. Overnight in hotel - Delhi
