India is popularly known as incredible India among tourists of India and abroad. India is explored and ruled by several invaders and traders from time to time. Some invaders ruled for a long period and some did that for a loot purpose and left India with the taste of their culture. In all over India, we can witness different monuments of different dynasties in India. Maximum monuments were built by rulers of other countries. These rulers chose to rule north India, because many battles were fought in north India, such as Delhi, Panipat, Rajasthan, Punjab, and so on in order to earn gold and to set up a new capital. From different period of time invaders from Turkey, Afghanistan, Iraq, Portugal, France and other parts of the world, including Britain, entered India. Some of them came for trade and some came for maximizing their reign. These invaders during their reign built many famous constructions, which are very popular today. Therefore, in this way Delhi was built several times and became the capital of India, which is filled with the monuments of different historical dynasty where we can see the mixed culture and traditions. Large amount of such constructions can also be seen mainly in Agra, Jaipur and in other parts of India. That is why today maximum tourist from every part of the world likes to travel in North India to experience the beauty of historical architecture. The said paper will try to find out different dimensions of historical monuments and their importance in north India. The paper mainly focus on Delhi as it is believed that Delhi has been destroyed and constructed many times, but still it is a matter of research for us that how we can preserve the beauty of these historical monuments in Delhi for future.
