Deeds – Indias second-largest city, on the Yamuna River, is very ancient, because archaeological research has found evidence of the first settlements dating back three thousand years.

His enchanting, bejeweled buildings, elegant, beautiful and eco-friendly parks confirm the citys stature as the capital of Britain and India during the heyday of the British Empire.

One of the citys main attractions is a temple made of white and pink marble, – Lakkhemi-Narayan, built in honor of the god Krisna and his sunny wife Lakkhemi, the guardians of family happiness and love, the most popular of the vast pantheon of deities of the Indian religion. And let connoisseurs of Indias traditional architecture see its ceremonial galleries, archways, towers, and marble sculptures as a reinterpretation and blend of the styles of different eras, The church itself, lit by the light of the sun, shining with golden light and bright colors, gives visitors a sense of celebration.

In the heart of the old city, one of the main attractions of Delhi is the Red Fort. The site of the Roman Empire, now one of the citys most important and beautiful monuments, is the Red Fort. The citadel, built in the 17th century, was named for the color of the crenellated walls made of red pechunk. Two buildings in the fort are particularly interesting: The Auditorium for Public Speeches – the Dève-i-Am, and the Auditorium for Private Auditions – The Dewan-i-Khas, which was the site of the famous Pavels Throne of Shah Jahan in pure gold, encrusted with a countless number of precious stones. In the mid-18th century this masterpiece was taken to Iran by Nadir Shahum, and today it is figuratively represented at the Museum of Tehran, while the main decoration of the throne – The royal jewel «Koh-i-Noor» – has been taken to England and is now sailing in the crown of the Queen of England.

A stones throw away from the church is the most grandiose shrine in Asia; the Cathedral Church of Juma Masjid, which can hold up to ten thousand believers during religious festivals.

The 12th century Tower of Victory is no less fascinating; the five-branched Kutbah Minar, home to one of humanitys oldest mysteries, the Iron Curtain. Scientists still cant explain. How in the 4th century (when it was cast) the masters were able to produce non-rusting, chemically pure iron, which is difficult to produce even in modern conditions with electric kilns. And how the ancient masters managed to cast a one-meter thick iron wagon is also a mystery. However, despite all the mystery of the Iron Pillar, there is a belief that if you put your hands behind your back and grab the Pillar, your greatest wish will come true.

Indash; a mysterious country in which a full cultural monument is full of mystery and enigma with a special mystical content.
