Buildings in New Delhi are a simple classicism, almost brutal. Janpath Street that stretches from the presidential palace to India Gate is proof of the greatness of the empire as much as the Red Fort, being one of the wide boulevards of New Delhi, where you will find most of the city’s museums and main shopping areas. Here, the population is predominantly Hindu, not only because it was like on the British management times, but because after Independence there arrived in town a lot of Hindu refugees from East Bengal and Pakistan Punjab.
The streets of New Delhi are symmetrically arranged, corresponding to plans drawn by the English architect Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens. Lutyens also designed the palace which is located downtown and which is the residence to the President and parliament and other important government buildings. The architecture of these buildings is largely European, but there are also found ingenious details belonging to the Indian style.
The city continues to expand, the center of New Delhi becoming overcrowded for many shops, clubs, restaurants and bars serving the middle stratum of the city in growth. Much businesses are moving to south Delhi, the vast area beyond the colonial city. Besides modern facilities, here you will find some of the oldest attractions of the city Delhi – Humayun’s Tomb, Qutb Minar and Tughluqabad ruins.
