Delhi is a city that bridges two different worlds. Old Delhi, once the capital of Islamic India, is a labyrinth of narrow lanes lined with old dwellings and formidable mosques. In contrast, the imperial city of New Delhi created by the British Raj is composed of spacious, tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings. Delhi has been the seat of power for several rulers and many empires for about a millennium. Many a times the city was built, destroyed and then rebuilt here. Interestingly, a number of Delhi's rulers played a dual role, first as destroyers and then as creators.
The city's importance lies not just in its past glory as the seat of empires and magnificent monuments, but also in its rich and diverse cultures. In Delhi, you will discover that the city is sprinkled with dazzling gems: captivating ancient monuments, fascinating museums and art galleries, architectural wonders, a vivacious performing-arts scene, fabulous eating places and bustling markets.
Delhi has been the political hub of India. Every political activity in the country traces its roots here. This was true even of the mythological era. The Pandavas of the Mahabharata had their capital at Indraprastha, which is believed to have been geographically located in today's Delhi.
Weather: Best time to visit Delhi is between October and March. In December, the average high temperature can be around 18 degrees Celsius (the low 60s, Farenheit) and low, 8 degrees Celsius (47 F). In early December 2015, temperatures have been as high as 28 degrees Celsius (82 F). Thus, the weather is variable and can be cool, especially in the evening. Bring appropriate clothing.
Indira Gandhi International Airport (IATA: DEL, ICAO: VIDP) is South Asia’s largest aviation’s hub, handling about 40 million passengers a year. All major international airlines have flights to Delhi.
Post-Congress travel: Since the dates of the Congress are close to Christmas and New Year, participants, especially from abroad, should consider traveling in India after the Congress. Temperatures in the south of India at beach resorts are quite warm and inviting.
