Old Delhi or 'Purani Dilli' was founded as Shahjahanabad in 1639, by Shah Jahan when he decided to change the capital of the Mughal Empire from Agra to this walled city known only as Delhi. It was once filled with mansions and houses of the nobles and members of the court, beautiful mosques and lush gardens. Despite having lost its former grandeur, Old Delhi continues to carry a charm which captivates anyone visiting the city.
