The city is spread over an area of 1,484 sq. km. and is the largest commercial center in the northern part of India, at an altitude between 700 and 1000 feet (213 and 305 m) on the Yamuna River. It is bordered on the east by Uttar Pradesh and by Haryana on the north, west and south. Delhi geography divides the state into three parts – the Delhi ridge, the Yamuna flood plain and the plains.
