Today, Delhi can boast of having gems of medieval architecture like Humayun’s Tomb and Qutab Minar side by side with modern architectural marvels like the Lotus Temple of the Baha’i’ faith and the Akshardham Temple.
Indian Habitat Center and Indian International Center on the Lodhi Road are only two of the most high profile locations which host round the year exhibitions of visual arts and performances of both classical and contemporary music and dance.
Among Delhi’s most fashionable locations are the central and southern areas like Connaught Place, Greater Kailash, Punjabi Bagh, Khan Market and Defence Colony.
Other segments of Delhi’s professional class are composed of those working for the central government, defense establishments and the headquarters of various companies established in the national capital.
Yet another crucial segment of Delhi’s migrant population includes its large expatriate population composed of students/researchers, political asylum seekers from other countries as well as the staff and families of nearly 160 foreign embassies.
Delhi has traditionally been the cultural hub of northern and central India.
Ever since the times of the Delhi Sultanate in the medieval ages and peaking under the patronage of the Mughals, the city has been a thriving center of art, architecture, literature and research.
