The official Indian capital since 1911, New Delhi stands on the Yamuna River on the western end of the gangetic plain in Northern India. Continuously inhabited since the 6th century, Old Delhi and New Delhi are no longer separate cities but are now a seamless, vibrant entity with many layers of history and culture. Located on the edge of Lutyen’s Delhi and ten minutes from Connaught Place in the heart of the city, The Lodhi is easily accessible from the Indira Gandhi international airport, some 25 kilometers and 40 minutes away. Many international and local carriers have daily flights to and from New Delhi.
With five distinct seasons, including the monsoon which usually arrives in July each year, the favorite time for travel and sightseeing in Northern India is from early October until late April. At the height of the short winter, between December and January, days are crisp and sunny and nights can be chilly. During this time, temperatures typically range from a high of 23Â°C (73Â°F) to an overnight low of approximately 2Â°C (36Â°F).
There are many distinct languages and dialects in India with English and Hindi being the most prevalent.
