Delhi has a unique history of blending itself with several different cultures. It is one of the most historic capitals in the world and two of its monuments - the Qutb Minar and Humayun's Tomb - have been declared World Heritage Sites. It offers a multitude of interesting places and attractions to the visitor, so much so that it becomes difficult to decide from where to begin exploring the city. In Old Delhi, attractions like mosques, forts, and other monuments, depict India's Muslim history.
New Delhi, on the other hand, is a modern city designed by Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker. New Delhi houses many government buildings and embassies, apart from places of historical interest. Notable attractions in New Delhi include the Rashtrapati Bhawan, the one-time imperial residence of the British viceroys; the India Gate, a memorial raised in honour of the Indian soldiers martyred during the Afghan war; the Swaminarayan Akshardham Temple at South Delhi epitomises 10,000 years of Indian culture in all its breathtaking grandeur, beauty, wisdom and bliss, ancient architecture, traditions and timeless spiritual messages; the Humayun's Tomb, said to be the forerunner of the Taj Mahal at Agra; Tughlaqabad, Delhi's most colossal and awesome fort and the lotus-shaped Baha'i House of Worship.
