From 1526 Humayun and his able successors extended the empire beyond the borders of Delhi, giving rise to an attempt to reunify the country. The eighth city was built when Emperor Shah Jahan moved the capital from Agra to Delhi. The construction of the main monuments of the city dates back to this period. With the arrival of the English Calcutta was chosen as the capital and only in 1911 was the capital brought back to Delhi. On February 9, 1931, the British viceroy inaugurated New Delhi on a project by Sir Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker.
