Old Delhi Street Food
Well, you must have heard of the famous paranthas from “Parathe Wali Gali”! Don’t miss out on delicious kachoris and mouth-watering Punjabi Lassi. While you are at it, you must visit the famous Chandni Chowk market where you can buy anything from clothes, shoes, electronics and pretty much anything that you can think of.
If you are in Delhi for the first time, the crowded and congested streets of Old Delhi can get difficult to go about. So if you are backpacking or carrying any heavy bags, it is recommended that you drop it at one of our cloakrooms.
Qutub Minar is a 73-meter long minaret(tower) that is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The minaret has been renovated multiple times during its existence as it was damaged due to earthquakes and lightnings. Hence, the newer additions to the minaret are clearly distinguishable.
Lotus temple is literally made in the shape of a lotus, signifying peace and tranquility. The entire architecture is built of pure white marble from the ground up and is currently used as a meditation center and a prayer hall. You must maintain silence when inside the temple. Photography is strictly not allowed here. Hence, if you are carrying cameras, it won’t be allowed inside the building.
India Gate, originally known as All India War Memorial, is a war memorial located astride the Rajpath, on the eastern edge of the “ceremonial axis” of New Delhi, formerly called Kingsway. Every year on Republic day, the Prime Minister visits the gate to pay their tributes to the Amar Jawan Jyoti. One can find the names of soldiers and martyrs inscribed on the walls of the gate as a symbol of respect, honor, and unity.
Connaught Place, also known as CP, is one of the biggest commercial hubs in Delhi. Name a brand, and you’ll probably find an outlet here! It’s a fun place to hang out with friends and families in the evening. You can find various bands and street artists jamming in the evening and the crowd joining to support them. The whole place gives you a festive vibe and is one of the top favourites of tourists in Delhi.
Finally, if you are one of those party animals, Hauz Khas is the place for you! Hauz Khas Village is the biggest party hub in the country and you can find people rocking to Punjabi music all night long!
You’ll probably be overwhelmed by Delhi if you have less than a day to explore, but it doesn’t fail to surprise you. However, the city is too big and it gets tiring pretty quickly. Hence, if you are carrying heavy luggage or a bag along with you, you can get rid of them by dropping it at one of our cloakroom facilities and enjoy the city luggage-free!
