Delhi (around 3000BC)

First city in Delhi - Indraprastha - is believed to be established around 3000-2800 BC, as written in Indian epic Mahabharata and confirmed from the excavated things in Purana Qila(pic).

After that several settlements were established in and around the region. Most famous of them were Siri, Tughlakabad, Shahjanabad, Lutyens Delhi.

I think that's the same city as mine, it has been 207 years the city status is official but it was already almost completely ceremonial from day one. The French gave it to us just like they gave us freedom of religion the northerners always pretended to have. It took many years before the rows and triangles of herds were smashed together, as industry filled up the in between laying grassland.

And it took us to the interwar period when we reached 100,000 inhabitants. And the village existed for centuries, more like eight of them.

It is still the youngest city of its size here, but Almere (1976) keeps chasing us though new predictions for 2030 are still in favour of Tilburg.
