What to do in Delhi
Delhi is India’s capital territory, and its mystic appeal makes it one of the top tourist destinations in the country. It has some of the best relics of the old world, rich culture, great food, and wonderful scenery. You won’t find it hard to love the heart of India.
Do you call yourself a history buff? Check out the famous lost empire of Red Fort which is made of beautiful red sandstone. Be greeted by the Delhi Gate, and marvel at all the sights inside like the Diwan-i-Aam audience hall, the Khas Mahal, Rang Mahal, and the Mumtaz Mahal.
Head straight to the fort’s Lahore Gate so you can go to the domed shopping area of Chhatta Chowk. Spend your Indian Rupees on fine silk, jewellery and other luxury items that will make you feel like royalty, and if you’re good at haggling you can get better deals.
If you want to shop till you drop, Delhi is heaven for bazaar shoppers. Bargain with the shop owners at Chandni Chowk, Jhandi Market, and the underground Palika Bazaar. Feeling peckish right about now? Visit Kamla Nagar for its spicy street food and a favourite of college students.
Other must-see sights you should include in your pictures are Delhi’s India Gate, Lodhi Garden, Jantar Mantar, the Lotus Temple, and Akshardham temple. Have you always wanted to see the Taj Mahal? Then visit Humayun’s Tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage site and also the inspiration for the Taj Mahal.
There are also museums so you can know more about Delhi’s history and culture, like the National Museum, National Handicrafts and Handlooms Museum, and Kiran Nadar Museum of Art.
Delhi’s festivals are also some of the most joyous and colourful in the word. Join their fun at the Holi Festival, Kite Flying Festival, and the stunning Festival of Lights or Diwali. To know what else you can find or where to eat in the city, check out this list of 25 things to do in Delhi.
