Delhi is the capital of India, its third largest city, and the industrial hub of northern India. In addition to being the epicenter of power, Delhi is the second most widely used entry point into the country. Built on the banks of the Yamuna river, the city is a beautiful blend of a historical past and a vibrant present. The National Capital Territory of Delhi was divided into nine districts in 1997. They are Central, North, South, East, West, North-East, South-East, North-West, and South-West District.

The capital shifted from Calcutta to Delhi in 1912. At that time, the area from Willingdon Crescent, Connaught Place, and Lodhi Gardens were covered by villages.
