Delhi has many gates of entry, but none for departure: this local saying has been borne out by the city's history, an inetrseting mixture of myth and reality. The strategic location of Delhi, between the Aravali hills and the river Yamuna, had attracted the attention of almost every king or conqueror in this part of the world. The earliest known capital city of Indraprastha was founded by the Pandavas in 1450 B.C. they leveled the forest of Khandava near the Yamuna and a splendid palace was built from them by Maya, the Devana architect.
Under the flourishing rule of Akbar, the kingdom was further extended and Agra became the centre of activity. Many important monuments namely, Red Fort was built during the reign of Shah Jahan. But in 1638 A.D.
Shah Jahan decided to shift the capital to Delhi and so he built his fort, Lal Quila. This city survived as Old Delhi. The decline of Mughal empire came by the 19th century as Bahadur Shah Zafar, the last Mughal emperor, surrendered to the British, thereby paving the way for a new dynasty in Delhi. It was in January 1931 the British Raj shifted their capital from Kolkata to New Delhi. New Delhi has endured to this day, as the capital of the Indian Union.
