About Delhi







The Conference is being organised in Delhi, the National Capital of India.The capital city of modern India has behind it centuries of history, which has enriched its culture.

Delhi is a city of marvellous contrasts. Its past and present mesh seamlessly to make it an exciting place to visit. The sprawling modern metropolis of Delhi enfolds within its limits the remains of seven earlier cities. Today the imposing forts and tombs of these earlier times co-exist comfortably with the elegant edifices of the British Raj and modern high-rise buildings. Cool tree-lined avenues with their white-washed bungalows are as much a part of the city’s charm as the ordered chaos of the narrow lanes and busy bazaars of the walled city.

Delhi is one of the World's best shopping centres. From handicrafts and antiques to all modern utilities — Delhi's shopping centres offer you everything under the sun.  Delhi’s fascinating bazaars and markets spill over with the finest that India has to offer - handicrafts, garments, fabrics and jewellery - making shopping a special delight.

Some of the places of interest include the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Purana Qila, Qutab Minar, India Gate, Presidential Estate, Humayun’s tomb, National Gallery of Modern Art, Lodi Gardens and the Bahai temple, among others.

Delhi is an excellent base for visiting Agra to see the world famous Taj Mahal and the historic city of Jaipur which are both five hours away.

To experience the colour and history of Delhi, custom-designed sightseeing tours have been arranged. For bookings please contact us at info@IndiaCore.com or contact the travel partner of the Conference- International Travel & Tourism at travel@vsnl.net or tel- 0 98185 22517.
