As long as one can recall, Delhi has been one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. And hence it reasons out well that why its every corner talk about history which with the coming years have been given a modern touch. What remains untouched today is the art which from the yesteryears has been embedded in the core of the city and now finds its place in the many art galleries in Delhi. It was the Delhi Shilpi Chakra and Dhoomimal Gallery that poured in their efforts to give Delhi the artistic infrastructure it deserved after independence. With the coming of the governments first five-year plan (1951-1956),

Delhi took an extensive turn towards taking up a cultural policy that brought in the National Gallery of Modern Art and Lalit Kala Academy. Now what the capital city has in the form of popular art galleries, represent not only the coming age artists showcasing Contemporary Indian art but also the talented creators of the ancient times. That being said, art galleries that we now have are much more than what they used to be before, they are the hub of fairs, art events and exhibitions that pull in travellers, hence act as a major source of tourism in Delhi.
