There's something different at the trade fair's Delhi pavilion this year.

A visit to pavilion takes you through the the city's journey in the past 100 years, including how it evolved into a metropolitan city from a colonial capital.

From the coronation ceremony of King George V in 1911 to the present day capital, the pictures at the pavilion sum up the evolution of the Capital.

The pavilion, inaugurated by chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday, has a dedicated section - emerging capital - which shows you 100 years of Delhi as a capital in pictures.

The culture, tradition and handicrafts have also been presented in a royal manner. The front facade and entrance of the pavilion has been recreated to represent Shahajahanabad, the hub of Mughal lifestyle.

The theme of the pavilion is Royal Dilli and on display are six important crafts that developed during the Shahajahnabad period including zardozi, minakari work and lacquer work.
