District New Delhi lies in the heart of the capital city of India. Historically it was planned by Sir Edwin Lutyen in a geometric pattern, over a triangular base which has three major functions at its apex viz. Commercial, governmental and recreational; Connaught Place, Government Complex (Viceroy Place and secretariat) and the India Gate are the respective centres of these major activities. The Connaught Place was conceived as the city centre, which was located in geographical center of the old and New Delhi, a link between two. Railway station was laid adjacent to it to cater to the region. Towards the south east of the Connaught Place and along river Yamuna, India Gate, National Stadium and recreational activities were planned. The Government Complex was planned towards the south west of Connaught Place. A monumental grid, known as the central Vista, linked the India Gate and Government Complex. Logically, the India Gate, symbolic city gate was planned on the river side, while the capital complex dominating the skyline was placed at the Raisina Hill. A hexagonal gird provided visual. Continuity of the city with the ancient monuments, like Purana Qila, Jama Masjid, Safdarjung Tomb, Ferozshah Kotla, Lodhi Tomb, Humayun Tomb etc. The new Capital covering about 1300 ha of land was carefully placed between two natural features of the site viz. River Yamuna on the East & the Aravali ridge towards the west. Though most of the New Delhi is preserved as it is only parts that have changed is the coming up of multi storey buildings in Connaught Place and new government complexes around India gate. New Delhi Being a strategic political, cultural, social, and environmental images of the city needs careful planning to preserve its character.
