Del·hi

 (dĕl′ē)
A city of north-central India on the Yamuna River. Important since ancient times, the old city was rebuilt by Shah Jahan in the 1600s with high stone walls enclosing the Red Fort that contained the imperial Mughal palace. The new part of Delhi became the capital of British India in 1911 and of independent India in 1947.
