Dwarka in Delhi is second Diplomatic Enclave for 39 countries. It is the largest residential suburb in Asia, with a total of 1718 residential enclaves, and a net population of 1,100,000. Earlier the area was known as Pappan Kalan during Mughal era most probably at the time of king Shah Alam.
Old tales say Pappan and Kakkan were two brothers who aspired to become chieftains of a tract of land. They fought a duel and Kakkan was killed. The story reminds one of Romulus and Remus fighting over the seven hills to found a capital. Romulus slew Remus and founded Rome after his name. Both stories are good legends, but convincing only as far as tales go.
