Here is a brief history over New Delhi. It was designed by British architects Sir Edwin Lutyens and Sir Herbert Baker. The entire city’s style was created as a symbol of British power, giving rise to the region’s melting pot of culture and architecture and was inaugurated as India’s new capital in 1931.
 
As we know that Delhi is well known for its unpredictable climate and polluted air, it is important to wisely choose when to visit the city. One should avoid travelling to New Delhi between April and June, as scorching heat upwards of 40°C are known to be common. In the same way, December to January practices extreme climates, with temperature dropping down to zero.
 
It’s advisable to make a trip in between February and March or October and November. Temperature around this time will be at 20-30°C, with azure skies and warm evenings to enjoy.
