Notes on the Geography of Northern India: New Delhi: Photo 1
We begin with the desolate Plain of Barwari, on the northern fringe of the city. (It's just inside the city's ring road at about 1 o'clock.) This is the site of the Coronation Grounds used in 1877, when Victoria was named Empress of India. The site was used again in 1903 to commemorate the accession of Edward VII and again in 1911, when George V announced the move of the capital from Calcutta to Delhi. The column marks the spot where George and Mary sat.
