Could someone provide a more literal translation to help me understand?

Purely literally, this would mean "to me delhi to go is". Where does the "have to" come from?

It's the verb-infinitive+है construction. It is a idiomatic and can mean 'want to verb ', 'have to verb ' or 'need to verb ' depending on context.
