Delhi and Northern India Map ITMB

Delhi is not only one of the largest cities in the world, it is the principal gateway into India. It is also the capital of modern India, and was the capital of the Mughal dynasty from the mid-1600s. As a result, it is a blend of history, the Raj era, and post-independence chaos.

The Red Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and the Tughlaqabad fortress ruins, dating from the 1300s, stretch for six kilometers. India’s largest mosque is located here, as well as its largest Hindu temple and the largest Sikh temple. In fact, Delhi is a city of religious buildings.

The reverse side of the sheet is new to this edition, covering much of central northern India and is perfect for making short tours of the region from Udaipur in the southwest to Srinagar in Kashmir/Jammu and historic Lucknow, site of the siege during the Mutiny, in the east. Jaipur and Agra (with its world famous Taj Mahal) is also on the map, as are dozens of other interesting cities and cultural sites. Printed on waterproof paper, this map is both informative and full of interesting tidbits of information.
