Located on the bank of Yamuna River, Delhi is the National Capital Territory (NCT) of India. It is India’s the largest metropolis by area and the second largest metropolis by population (first is Mumbai). New Delhi is the capital of Delhi NCT as well as national capital of India. Practically, Delhi is functioning like a state; it has its own Legislature, executive council of ministers headed by a Chief Minister (jointly administered with Central Government of India), and High Court. Furthermore, further, with its satellite towns including Gurgaon and Faridabad (in Haryana) and Noida, Greater Noida, and Ghaziabad (in Uttar Pradesh), Delhi is known as National Capital Region (NCR).

As shown in the Delhi Map, it is geographically positioned between Uttar Pradesh (Shares boundary from east) and Haryana (shares boundary from north, west, and south). Delhi has humid subtropical climate classified into three distinct seasons namely Winter (mild cold), Summer (hot), and Rainy seasons. Yamuna River flows all the way from north to south in the east side of the city and divides city into two parts; however, the eastern part of the city is new and developing region. Furthermore, Aravalli Range forms some landforms and topography of Delhi region; though, it is a relict mountain but still Delhi Ridge is part of Aravalli Range

Historically, Delhi is pretty old and continuously inhabited city of India. It is believed that it was the site of ‘Indraprastha’ the legendary capital of the “Pandavas” during the Mahabharata period. However, it is re-emerged as the point of center during the Delhi Sultanates period. At that time, it was major trade route. Thereupon, it became center for the Mughal empires and finally, in 1911, British rule made it as the capital of India. After independence, it remained as the national capital of India and hence it abodes several central government offices including Parliament, Rashtrapati Bhavan etc.

Moreover, Delhi is the central place of India, here people from all regions of India come and live; besides, because of being the National Capital, many foreigners also live here. Therefore, it is a multicultural region or cosmopolitan metropolis.
