Old Delhi



  Old Delhi was once known as Shahjahanabad city. Shah Jahan was created and made it his capital. This walled city has a long and interesting history and even today, remnants of its glorious past can be seen in the form of Kashmiri Gate, Ajmer Gate, Turkman Gate, Delhi Gate and Feroz Shah Kotla. The growing population in this area has resulted in an extremely tight housing overlapping the small industries and commercial activities in the region. Purani Dilli, capital of Muslim India, from 17 to 19 century, houses a number of forts, monuments and mosques.
