Historically, The British made Delhi the Indian capital in 1911, replacing Kolkata from the top spot. Delhi is believed to contain the remnants of at least 11 cities, including Indraprastha from the Mahabharata. Only eight cities—Qila Rai Pithora, Mehrauli, Siri, Tughlaqabad, Ferozabad, Dinpanah and Shahjahanabad—have been documented so far.
