    As you must be aware that Delhi is well populated from ages and had number of rulers and civilizations, so we have a lot of historical places here. Few which I can name are:

    1. Old Fort
    2. Red Fort
    3. Qutub Minar
    4. Jamali Kamali (some people include it in Qutub Minar but its not the same, its on few minutes drive from Qutub Minar)
    5. Hauz Khaz Ruins
    6. Hamayun's Tomb (Mugal tombs complex)
    7. Ancient Yogmaya temple (Claimed to be from the time of Mahabharata Era)
    8. India Gate
    9. Old Delhi (there are number of old structures, you may like to walk down on streets to explore)
