The Muse Sarovar Portico, Nehru Place
When India gained independence from British rule in 1947, Delhi was declared the capital city and the seat of government. The city, planned by Edwin Lutyens, a leading 20th century British architect, is known for its wide, tree-lined boulevards and numerous national institutions and historic landmarks. These icons are testimony to the grandeur of the past and also serve as major attractions for visitors to the city.
Owing to the migration of people from across the country, Delhi has grown to be a cosmopolitan metropolis. Its rapid development and urbanisation coupled with the relatively high average income of its population has transformed the city completely. Today Delhi is a major cultural, political, and commercial centre of India.
Delhi is well connected with every part of the world as well as India through air. The most important airport is the Indira Gandhi International Airport near Palam. All major carriers operate their domestic flights from the domestic terminal here. The international terminal links Delhi to all other international cities. The other airbase in Delhi is in Safdarjung, which is used mainly by various flying clubs and helicopters.
Delhi is very well connected by rail with all parts of India. Though Delhi has five railway stations, the New Delhi Station and the Old Delhi station are the major ones. Some major trains like the Mumbai-Rajdhani-Nizamuddin operate from Nizamuddin railway station. The other two stations in Delhi are Sarai Rohilla and Railway Cantonment stations.
The Delhi Metro, constructed and operated by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), connects the city with the rest of the metropolis of Delhi. Nehru Place metro station is 1 km from away from hotel.
Delhi is also well connected with bus services of Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) and state roadways of neighbouring states like Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, to all important cities and destinations in North India. National Highways passing through Delhi play a major role in communication and trade, thus making Delhi an important commercial hub.
