Located on the banks of the River Yamuna, Delhi has been known to be continuously inhabited since at least the 6th century BCE though human habitation is believed to have existed since the second millennium BCE.

Delhi is also widely believed to have been the site of Indraprastha, the legendary capital of the Pandavas during the times of the Mahabharata.Delhi is the largest metropolis by area and the second-largest metropolis by population in India.It is the eighth largest metropolis in the world by population with 16.7 million inhabitants in the Territory at the 2011 Census. 
Delhi's culture has been influenced by its lengthy history and historic association as the capital of India. This is exemplified by the many monuments of significance found in the city; the Archaeological Survey of India recognises 1200 heritage buildings and 175 monuments in Delhi as national heritage sites.
