Delhi is a thoroughly inscrutable onion of a city – every layer you peel off reveals a still deeper layer of history. Rebuilt eight times by its many conquerors, it has been the seat of the Hindu, Muslim and British Empires. They all have left their mark in the architecture, customs, food and people of this relentless city, now undergoing a new transformation as the capital of modern India.
