Delhi is a city in India, the capital of the country. It has an area of 1290 sq km and over 25 million people. It is located on the banks of the river Yamuna and is considered one of India’s oldest cities. The city is also known as Chandragupta Vikramaditya after its founder, Chandragupta Maurya.
The city was founded around the 2nd century BC by King Ashoka (286-232 BC), who wanted to build his empire on the banks of the river Yamuna. He wanted to build a grand city to rule from here, but he could not do so due to a lack of resources. His son Bindusara built a new capital at Mathura, where he ruled for the next two centuries before moving back to Delhi with his courtiers and army in 232 BC.
The Mughal Empire ruled Delhi from 1526 AD till 1857 AD, when the British army defeated them under General Dost Mohammad Khan during Second Anglo-Sikh War (1845). After almost 200 years, the British took over Delhi again in 1947, when India became independent from Britain after 3000 years of rule over this region.
