New Delhi is an exhilarating city with fast life, money, power and glamour. But it's also ancient, old, charming, beautiful and seeped in history. There are many parts of city which went through a renovation rising like a phoenix from the ashes but it still has retained its history and heritage. One of the places which have come a far way on the city's glamour circuit is Defence Colony. This posh and very stylish residential colony is situated in central south Delhi and is a prime location for properties. It was built in 1960s for ex-defence service people as their habitat but today the area is more affluent and expensive in every sense. Its fantastic location makes it one of the most expensive places to live in Delhi. Its list of residents contains old expats, ex-army men, businessmen, doctors and diplomats. The area is well developed and is constantly invaded to avail the pleasures of the famous defence colony market.
