The Union Territory of Delhi has found prominence right
from the epic of the Mahabharata and the various dynasties
of the Maurayas, Pallavas, Guptas, and finally the Mughals.
Delhi became the centre of all activities after the
capital was shifted from Kolkata. It was made a Union
Territory in 1956.
Lying in the northern part of the country, Delhi is
surrounded by Haryana on all sides except the east,
where it borders with Uttar Pradesh.
