India’s capital is a place of continual reinvention: At least seven other distinct cities have stood here at some point in history. Landmarks from this motley legacy include the Red Fort of the 17th–century Mughal empire and the palatial Rashtrapati Bhavan, originally a residence for the British viceroy. Today, the sense of living history co–exists with the contemporary, including a flourishing art scene and stylish, boutique–filled neighbourhoods.
