The climate of Delhi (India)
Delhi is one of the largest urban areas in the world. Officially it is called: National Metropolitan Territory of Dehli. In popular language by Dehli is also meant New Dehli. This is the capital of India and it is situated in the urban area of Dehli at the bank of the river Yumana and the first people already settled here some 2000 years B.C. For a long time the town played an important role in the trade routes running through India and also at the time of the various rulers, such as the English, was an important town. Throughout the town the present and the past meet. You can find present architecture as well as beautiful colonial buildings and wonderful ancient temples together here. Whether it is the extremely beautiful modern-shaped Lotus temple or the ancient Akshardham Temple. Both are more than worth visiting.
Delhi has a warm China climate. This climate is characterized by a difference in seasons and a very wet summer and dry winter. In March the wind comes mainly from the north-west. Thus very warm air is conveyed and therefore the temperature is very high from March up to and including October. From June the air humidity increases due to the arrival of the rainy period. In combination with the high temperature this is far from agreeable. Some cooling arrives in November when the short winter begins. In the month of January dense fog can regularly occur.
