A two-day seminar was organised by the National Monuments Authority on Delhi's glorious past in the national capital. Dr BR Mani, Ex-ASI senior archaeologist said, "The aim of the seminar was to know about the foundation of the city of Delhi." He further said,"Anangpal-2 is supposed to have established the first city of Delhi." NMA chairman Trun Vijay said,"That’s why we had three sessions. First was based on tradition and literature, another on coins and epigraphs and third on archaeological evidences. The attempt was to find out the actual picture. The objective is to fortify research apart from excavations and inscriptions on tracing Delhi’s name to Anangpal-II."
