Been There – Delhi

At the very first glance it might seem that Starbucks Been There Delhi is the mug for the same city as we’ve seen within the YAH collection: New Delhi. Make no mistake, these are two different entities. New Delhi is an administrative district within the borders of Delhi. In other words, it’s a city within another city.
Delhi is one of the oldest cities in the world and has always been a dominant trading and commercial center in northern India. Its metropolitan area has a population of over 30 million people, making it one of the biggest of its kind in the world.
Here are some landmarks and symbols from the mug:
– Cricket is one of the most popular sports in Delhi, hence quite a few cricket fields in the city with the Arun Jaitley Stadium being one of the oldest cricket grounds in India and a venue for international cricket matches. The city hosted the Cricket World Cup in 2011.
– Cycle rickshaw is a popular transportation in the city. Interestingly enough, these are being slowly replaced by electric rickshaws since the 2000s
– Humayun’s tomb is the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. Designed by Persian architects, it was the first garden-tomb in India.
– The Qutb Minar (on the back of the mug), a.k.a. Qutub Minar or Qutab Minar is the tallest minaret in the world built of bricks. It is 238ft high and contains a spiral staircase with 379 steps.
