New delhi (India)

New Delhi in India's capital and located in the north of the country. New Delhi is a new neighborhood in the original Delhi metropolis, which was designed, built, and taken in use by the British in 1931. The city's main attractions are the Red Fortress, a fortress which was built in the 1600s out of red sandstone, the Humayun's Tomb, which hosts for India exceptionally neat gardens as well as a veritable tomb building, which is remarkably similar to the Taj Mahal, as well as the Qutubin minaret, which was built in the 1300's and is 72 m high. The city also has numerous museums and temples, like the prominent Lotus Temple. If you arrive in Delhi at night it is recommended is to stay at the airport or in well lit areas until the morning. If someone tries to offer you help or advice or tries to take you somewhere, refuse, because these are almost always scams, robberies, or worse. If something happens, always to make the biggest possible fuss so that you can be spared of worse.
