East Delhi is a very smart area on the eastern bank of the River Yamuna, with many major commercial and administrative establishments, including upscale malls and fine restaurants.

East Delhi has four main regions: Mayur Vihar, Preet Vihar, Shahdara and Patparganj.

Preet Vihar is especially vibrant. Fashionistas flock to its designer boutiques. People come to hang out at international chains like McDonald's and Domino's or at local restaurants.

There are also some educational and training centres here.
