With a history going back more than 3,000 years, the capital of India is a seamless blend of tradition and modernity, where ancient monuments co-exist with ultra-modern high-rise buildings and commercial plazas.
Delhi has a rich architectural heritage-from the 12th century Qutub Minar of the Slave Dynasty, through the Red Fort of the Mughals, to the colonial architecture of Lutyens' Delhi and the 20th Century Ba'hai Temple, leaving the visitor with a memorable experience.
Delhi is one of the most historic capitals in the world and two of its monuments- the Qutab Minar and Humayun's Tomb - have been declared World Heritage Sites. It is also one of the greenest capitals. For the visitor, it serves as a perfect introduction to the cultural wealth, the complexities and dynamism of India. Delhi is a city of mysterious eternity whose old ruins proclaim a majestic and imperial past and whose present pulsates vibrantly with the ever flowing life of India. City speaks of the multi religious cultures with the message of peace, brotherhood and humanity. You would visualise Delhi as a city of traditions and culture originating from different faith and religion.

Shaped like a half opened Lotus flower, this temple is made of marble, cement, dolomite and sand, it is an ideal place for meditation and obtaining peace and tranquility. Red Fort, Jama Masjid and India Gate are the monumental attractions for tourists. Akshardam Temple is the recent creation with sprawling surroundings. Another wonder of human creation is Taj Mahal- a tribute to beauty of white marble which stands as the symbol of love, in the Agra city, located approximately 200 km south of Delhi. Other nearby attractions of tourism are Jaipur, and Chandigarh. Many more possibilities exist for the delegates to visit different parts of India with well connected flights all over to the touristic places.
Delhi has the country's best facilities for holding conferences, seminars and conventions - and to support this, a wide range of hotel accommodation is available.
